Delving Deeper - Journey of the Transverse Flute by Suzanne Stumpf
New this season, Musicians of the Old Post Road offers its Delving Deeper series which explores the artistic evolution of some of the ensemble’s period instruments through three one-hour presentation-performances by its core members.
These intimate concert-talks afford audiences the opportunity to be introduced to beautiful, rediscovered repertoire as well as to learn more about the history and characteristics of historical instruments.
Each event takes place on a Saturday at 7:30pm, with live Zoom reception Q & A sessions to follow.
From the invention of the Baroque flute just prior to Bach’s birth as the first fully chromatic transverse flute, to the development of multi-keyed Classical and old-system Romantic flutes, to Theobold Boehm's modern flute, listeners will learn about the cultural and technological influences that guided changes to the flute and experience the charm of each instrument through short performances of works by Hotteterre, Telemann, Quantz, Tromlitz, Kuhlau, Gaubert, Debussy, and others.
