Product Description:
The Flute. This program deals with the history and development of the metal instrument we know today as the transverse flute. We learn how the flute was popularized by French flautist Jacques Hotterre, son of its creator, Jean Hotterre, at the court of Louis XIV. We see how continuing improvements to the instrument over time increased its use, until it became a key instrument in modern orchestras. Flute performances from works by Lully, Frederick the Great, Beethoven, and Debussy are interspersed throughout the program, along with concertos for recorders by Vivaldi and Telemann. (28 minutes)
