Journey of the Transverse Flute by Suzanne Stumpf

Join Suzanne Stumpf to explore works for transverse flute from the Baroque through Debussy, at this third and final ‘Delving Deeper’ series performance.

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.
