This month Lewis and Guest artist Jill Crawford introduced the ca. 1727/1728 fantasias of Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767). Originally written for transverse flute, these solo pieces work well for the alto recorder when transposed up a third, or even in the original keys when on tenor recorder or voice flute. There were opportunities to play selections from several movements. Participants were encouraged to play selections for the group and to prepare questions for the technical challenges this wonderful collection offers.
Jill Crawford, guest flutist, performs in a variety of musical styles and is a member of Volanti Flute Quartet and Trillium Chamber Music. She has been a soloist with the New Brunswick Chamber Orchestra and the Westminster Bach Festival, and has been featured in various concert series in New Jersey. Having earned a B. Mus.degree from New England Conservatory and M. Mus. from Mason Gross School of Rutgers University, both in flute performance, she continued her studies to include baroque flute. Jill in on the faculties of Westminster Conservatory and Albrook Montessori School and is music director of Union Village Methodist Church.
