October 9, 2017, Monday - The Royal Flutes: Music from the Court of XIV at MacPhail

Time: 7:30pm

Location: MacPhail Center for Music, 501 2nd Street S

The Royal Flutes: Music from the Court of XIV

Virtuoso baroque flutists, Barthold Kuijken and Immanuel Davis, are joined by viola da gambist, Arnie Tanimoto and harpsichordist, Donald Livingston in a program of French music from the Court of Louis XIV. The flute was experiencing a newfound popularity with audiences and was considered one of the most fashionable instruments. For this program or works by Couperin, Hotteterre and Marais, Mr. Kuijken and Mr. Davis are playing Hotteterre-styled flutes at the luxuriously low pitch of A=392 (a whole-step below our modern A). The mellow sounds of these wood flutes create an atmosphere of blending sounds that will sooth and tantalize the listener’s ear. $20 for adults, $10 for seniors, $8 for students.
