Change of Plans - New Plan - Online Seminar on Music of Telemann and Quantz

Led by Steven Russell.
See Steven’s bio and pic.

At this seminar we will explore two strikingly beautiful pieces of Baroque music written originally, and particularly well for, the alto recorder. In the Telemann we will have the opportunity to play music for two alto recorders together, and enjoy their interplay. We will also investigate his naming of several movements with historical women’s names. In the Quantz we will look at how the composer, an expert on the flute, writes differently for the transverse flute as opposed to the recorder.

For the Telemann players can decide to play either of the two alto recorder parts. For the Quantz, the alto recorder part is labeled “Flauto dolce.” The other part is for the transverse flute. The Quantz file starts out showing the full score. Register to receive the music in advance, and Zoom invitation.
