Blog Tour: Playing the Maestro by Aubrie Dionne
Top Ten Favorite Musicians

1.       Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – I think everything he wrote is gorgeous. I especially like his flute concerto that I’ve featured in Playing the Maestro.

2.       My flute teacher, Peggy. Not only did she give me the confidence I needed to succeed, she’s also an amazing flutist and a lifelong mentor and friend.

3.       My friend and colleague, Piper. She’s my harp soul mate. You can see us playing together on my You Tube channel.

4.       My husband, Chris. Even though he’s giving up music to be a pilot, he’d an exceptional musician.

5.       Enya- her music calms me like nothing else can.

6.       David Bowie- gotta love Labyrinth.

7.       James Galway- flutist extraordinaire. He’d played recorder in the Lord of the Rings Sound track. How cool is that?

8.       Jean Pierre Rampal- another extraordinary flutist. I grew up listening to his recording of Prokofiev’s Sonata for Flute. The memory that Melody has of him in Playing the Maestro is my memory from high school.

9.       Celine Dion- Love her amazing voice.

10.   Taylor Swift- what a great start to a lifelong musical career.

 Melody Mires has sworn off dating musicians, but when the sexy European conductor Wolf Braun takes over her struggling symphony, her hesitation almost flies out the window with the notes of her flute—until he opens his mouth. Wolf is arrogant, haughty, and seems to have a personal vendetta against Melody. Oh, and he’s her boss. If she wants to keep her job as principal flutist, she’ll have to impress Wolf while simultaneously keeping her undeniable attraction to herself.

Wolf came to America to get as far away from his past as possible, and to recover some of the swagger he had as one of the world’s best maestros. He never imagined being forced to reassess the entire orchestra’s talent—and potentially fire anyone who doesn’t make his cut. Dating the attractive flutist is out of the question, but as their feelings reach a fever pitch, can they risk both their careers for a chance at love?--Goodreads
