Telemann's Flute Fantasias: A Transcription for Unaccompanied Horn
One of Georg Philipp Telemann's masterpieces is his set of twelve fantasias for solo flute. In this project, I transcribed the fantasias for unaccompanied horn. Because these works present many technical and musical challenges, the project includes additional research on appropriate performance practice. This information is based on standard Baroque performance practice for winds and brass, as well as practical considerations of how to create these sounds on the modern horn. Consideration is also paid to the technical limitations of Baroque instruments, as compared to their modern descendants.
