The works of Florie Namir have been performed worldwide by NotaRiotous and Dinosaur Annex Ensembles (United States), Meitar Ensemble (Israel), Quartetto Mansi (Italy), Prometheus Ensemble (Belgium) and Trio Elixir (France) among others.
Florie Namir's music possesses a unique and identifiable harmonic color, inspired by a wide array of compositional styles ranging from Debussy to John Adams. "Expressive," "vibrant" and "rhythmically driven" are often used to describe the character of her music. Other creative inspirations include the work of Paul Hindemith. Florie's composition Dialogue for Two Pianos, received an honorary mention of Prof. Giselher Schubert, director of the Paul Hindemith Institute in Frankfurt. In this piece Florie integrated three sketches by Paul Hindemith which the composer never used himself. The score lives in the institute's collection.
