On Playing the Flute
Quantz, Johann Joachim
The Classic of Baroque Music Instruction, Second Edition. Translated with notes and an introduction by Edward R. Reilly. Johann Joachim Quantz's On Playing the Flute, first published in both German and French editions in 1752, has long been recognized as one of the most significant and in-depth treatises on eighteenth-century musical thought, performance practice, and style. This classic text of Baroque music instruction goes far beyond an introduction to flute methods by offering a comprehensive program of studies that is equally applicable to other instruments and singers. On Playing the Flute vividly conveys the constancy of musical life over time and remains a valuable guide for contemporary musicians. Soft cover, 412 pages.
