Lectures on traverso & recorder

"Thomas Stanesby and The True Concert Flute"

A presentation of the baroque flute and the recorder as seen by the famous London maker 
Thomas Stanesby whose workhop produced both instruments, and who, 
still believing in the recorder in spite of its waning popularity, 
built a version capable of playing with the traverso or even replacing it. 
This lecture will be illustrated with duets by Michel Blavet,
harmoniously blending the tone of both instruments.
(Lecture in collaboration with Philippe Bolton, recorder maker)


Many thanks to  Sebastià Serra for his help, 

Philippe Bolton, a master in recorder making,

Barthold Kuijken, my teacher.
