The Traverso

The traverso, the baroque flute's popular Italian name, is the predecessor of the modern silver flute and was played during the late 17th until the late 18th centuries. It is an instrument made of wood and boasts all but one key: a model which was actually considered by some to be the ultimate construction for the flute at the time ... and by a many who like to play baroque music on period instruments even today!

Wooden Flute - New Sounds

This wooden one-keyed flute encourages us to explore new sound colours and styles as we delve into the playing practices of the past. Are you curious about working with 'early' music? Maybe you're already an avid wind player in search of new experiences and sound worlds? Or perhaps you're at the beginning of your musical journey? Either way, the traverso is the ultimate guide to beautiful, sensitive and fulfilling wind playing!

"Affektenlehre", or the doctrine of the passions In the 18th century, music was composed according to the theory of "affects" or "passions". These were what we might call the "emotions" that the music was meant to arouse in the listener. We will explore each piece to find the different affects it suggests, and we might use techniques derived from historical theater so that you are able to embody these affects and then express them in your playing.

Playing the traverso should make you feel good! Playing an instrument is a beautiful way of connecting intense intellectual and emotional focus with fine physical skills. When these elements come together in the right way, making music becomes a deeply gratifying experience. We will work together on enhancing all of them, so you can connect to the music intellectually, emotionally, and physically. We will take care that you understand the music, that you are moved by it, and thatyour posture and technique help you express yourself exactly as you want to. Improvisation In the 18th century, a clear distinction was made between "Liebhaber", someone who only played music that waswritten, and "Kenner", someone who understood the rules of composition. The distinction was often made depending on whether the musician knew how to compose music "ex tempore", that is, how to improvise. Improvising ornaments on the piece you are playing, for instance, can give you a very refreshing look on how toapproach it, and will give you greater freedom to make the music your own.

Music is Food for the Soul

"This will be our reply to violence: to make more music intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before'' 

Leonard Bernstein - composer, conductor, pianist
