Description - On Playing the Flute by Johann Joachim Quantz
Long recognized as one of the primary sources of information about eighteenth-century performance practice, this re-issue includes a new introduction by Professor Reilly. In spite of its title, it is not simply a tutor for the flute, but a fully-fledged programme for training musicians of all types. It contains a wealth of detailed information on intonation, ornamentation, dynamics, the 'duties' of the various accompanying performers, including the leader of the orchestra, and the principal forms and styles (French, Italian and German) of the Baroque period.
