The Profile of the Talk

Wissam has begun work on what will be his first and final book, entitled Journey of a Sensualist. It will set out the life lessons, attitudes and methods that his musical journey has taught him and
inspired countless fellow musicians.

Join us for a wonderful event with Wissam who will talk "with the flute" and "around the flute".

Here are some YouTube clips showing Wissam with his usual passion:

Wissam Boustany – Flute soloist / Educator / Conductor

“Love is a healing power, discipline and way of life that raises our every deed to an exalted level”
Wissam Boustany

Recently turned 60, Wissam looks forward to the next decade. Wissam has established his unique brand of flute-playing and musicianship over decades worldwide. His intense, sincere and emotive approach to music-making has become known as his ‘Method Called Love’ and has inspired emerging musicians and audiences alike, having harnessed three key elements into his performances: love, improvisation and memorisation.

As communities around the world gradually establish new post-pandemic realities, Wissam is restructuring his concerts, touring and teaching into a hybrid combination of inspirational local projects which capitalise on the advantages of live-streaming technologies.

In tandem with his performing, Wissam’s ‘Method Called Love’ masterclasses, discussions, presentations, workshops and one-to-one lessons will continue to open up new creative horizons for emerging musicians of all ages and abilities, whether live or online.

Wissam was just starting to expand into conducting when the pandemic struck. Having launched the Pro Youth Philharmonia in 2018 and embarked on two tours, this massive undertaking had to wind down recently, due to the uncertainties surrounding the pandemic.

Wissam plans to resume his conducting as soon as public performances can take place safely. His uplifting ‘Method Called Love’ has found its way into his conducting and rehearsing, inspiring a strong bond between musicians and instilling a deep sense of joy, intensity and communicative power. Wissam is passionate about working with younger ensembles and orchestras, cultivating the human and musical attitudes, disciplines and methods that will help emerging musicians find sustainable fulfilment and opportunity within the music profession.
