Washington’s Camerata at MAFC

February 17, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Washington’s Camerata returns to the Flute Society of Washington’s Mid-Atlantic Flute Convention!

The Flute Music of J. J. Quantz (or… we studied his book for you and here’s what it sounds like)

Washington’s Camerata, an early music ensemble using period instruments, will give a lecture performance recital presenting a selecton of Quantz’ music for flute solo, duo, sonata and ensemble. Before each piece we will briefly highlight part of his treatise and how it could apply to the musical selection. We will also discuss the openness in interpretation of historical treatises and hope to encourage flutists that a musically satisfying performance is possible whether or not you are going “by the book”.
