Journey of the Transverse Flute by Suzanne Stumpf

As she discusses and performs on seven different instruments, listeners will learn about the cultural and technological influences that guided changes to the flute and experience the charm of each instrument through short performances of works by Hotteterre, J.S. Bach, Telemann, Quantz, Tromlitz, Kuhlau, Fiala, Debussy, and Gaubert.
