The Romantic Flute

Dorothea with her flute

In this lecture-recital, Dorothea Seel from the University of Graz opens up a new perspective on the music of the 19th century. Taking a representative selection of solo, chamber and orchestral literature, she illustrates specific conditions in the music centres of Europe with regard to instruments, interpreters and sound aesthetics. Seel, accompanied by Steven Devine on the Museum's historic pianos, will play several historical flutes, exploring an unfamiliar, sensual and richly differentiated soundworld.
