LA FLÛTE ITALIENNE

LA FLÛTE ITALIENNE

Information on the activity

Francis Colpron will play Italian works from the 17th and 18th centuries for this recital. Instrumental virtuosity, which became exuberant in the Baroque era, was never gratuitous but rather served to express emotion. Such virtuosity developed at the dawn of the 17th century, first among violinists, but soon spread to highlight the distinctive characteristics of wind instruments.
