Notes and Editorial Reviews

The figure of the mysterious flautist who according to legend enticed the children away from the town of Hamelin with his music in the year 1284 has retained its fascination up to the present day. What sort of music could the Pied Piper have played? Norbert Rodenkirchen, a specialist in medieval flute music, has evaluated contemporary sources - based on recent research findings - and produced a musical compilation forming a tonal portrait. The melodies of Prince Wizlaw III of Rügen and ancient Slavonic dances provide the focus of this CD alongside numerous sources of other minnesingers and are utilised by the musician to recreate the enchanting melodies of the Pied Piper.
