News from Matteo : Allemande by J. J. Quantz


Here is some wonderful music, played by Matteo Gemolo on a copy of J.W. Oberlender XVIII sec. made by Martin Wenner. Sound engineer is Enrico Pigozzi.

I found the score, doing some research in Frans Vesters ‘Flute Music of the 18th Century’,  as Q374 ‘Fantasier og Preludier, 8 Capricier og andre Stykker til Qvelse for Flöijten af Quanz’ as part of the Gieddes Samling in Kopenhagen.  The correct reference in the Gieddes Samling catalogue by Inge Bittmann is  (mu 6310.0860 (I,17)). Both books are available for consultation in our documentation centre.

I am not able to let you listen to the music while you click the following link to the score or the excerpt, so … first listen before you continue or you will be frustrated !

The copyist manuscript  is free available online.  Just click this link.

Here is the relevant excerpt.
