Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the Baroque it was by no means uncommon for composers to freely transcribe and arrange their own works or works by others for a different instrument. Therefore, any present day attempt of alternative instrumentation should be viewed with respect and curiosity: the result counts. And what result we encounter on this new recording of Flute Concertos by Telemann transcribed for the Pan Flute! By turns dramatic and furious, sweet and beguiling: the pan flute has infinite coloristic qualities to do full justice to these master works. The pan flute in its present form originates from 17th century Rumania, mostly used as a folk music instrument. However the use of the pan flute in “classical” Baroque music is by no means an abomination. The Read more improvisatory character, the organic way of tone production which is regulated by the intensity of the breath of the player suit the Baroque music particularly well! These tracks are all exhilarating performances by master pan flutist Hanspeter Oggier and his Ensemble Fratres. Read less
