~ early 19th-century guitar
~ 8-keyed flute (London, 1820)
Virtuoso works from the early 19th-century golden age for flute and guitar will be performed on authentic early 19th-century instruments.
the late 18th and early 19th centuries the industrial revolution and
the musical appetite of a new middle class ushered into being
trends less affected by stylistic constraints of the past. This emerging early 19th-century romanticism and new tonal expectations of musical instruments brought about a new chemistry between flutists and
guitarists, a blossoming of guitar-flute repertoire by virtuosos on their
evolving instruments, and a golden age for the flute-guitar duo.
The 8-keyed flute used in this performances was made in London in 1820 of cocuswood or
Jamaican ebony with silver ornamental rings and keys by George Rudall with the help of George Willis. In 1821 Rudall
joined with Rose to make Rudall & Rose flutes, which have found
their way into the hands of some of today's most well-known flutists
playing traditional Irish music. (Pictured above is Mauro Giuliani.)
