2019 Showcase Program
Flauto dolce solo
In this program, Vincent Lauzer performs works from the Baroque era for solo recorder. This concert features virtuosic excerpts from Jacob van Eyck’s Der Fluyten Lust-hof, inspired fantasias by Telemann and a transcription of J.S. Bach’s famous Partita for Solo Flute. Lauzer also offers his own transcriptions of Tartini’s Variations on a Gavotte by Corelli and of J.S. Bach’s second cello suite. With 10 instruments with him on stage, Vincent Lauzer hopes to make you rediscover the recorder in a new light.
