Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643–1702) is now recognized as the greatest French composer of the 17th century. He wrote over 120 works, mostly vocal, in which he called for flûtes, mostly in pairs, as well as about 80 further possibles. But which instruments did he have in mind? Drawing on the latest research by Charpentier scholars, David Lasocki has surveyed the entire corpus of the composer’s works written, or possibly written, for flûtes.
The text is accompanied by no fewer than 48 musical examples, most of them of playable length.
