Russian Guitar and Romantic Flute

Oleg Timofeyev, Russian 7-string guitar and classical period guitar
Jeffrey Cohan, 8-keyed flute (London, 1820)

Oleg Timofeyev, the world's leading authority on the Russian 7-string guitar, will play his rare instrument with Jeffrey Cohan, performing on an eight-keyed flute made by flutist George Rudall in 1820 in London, in a performance of mostly unpublished Russian, American and European works from 1790 through 1840 which have been unearthed by Timofeyev and Cohan in Russia and at the Library of Congress.
The free performance on Capitol Hill is sponsored by the District of Columbia Commission on the Arts and Humanities' Fête de la Musique.

The Fit Virtuoso

Hans-Jürgen Schnoor, Harpsichord
Jeffrey Cohan, renaissance and baroque flutes

The role of virtuosi and the nature of their instruments and music evolved rapidly through the 17th and early 18th centuries. This varied program provides a glimpse of what early 17th-century military flutists might have played on their cylindrical instruments as portrayed in Virgiliano's Ricercata in Battaglia. It offers a sonata from Der Brauchbare Virtuoso, in which Johann Mattheson published the first German solo music specifically for transverse flute, and a comparison of the great chromatic fantasies for solo keyboard by J.P. Sweelinck and J.S. Bach.

Obbligato

Hans-Jürgen Schnoor, harpsichord
Jeffrey Cohan, baroque flute

Solo sonatas of the baroque period usually were supported by a single bass line from which an accompaniment was fashioned by a bass or chordal instrument or both. Obbligato refers to fully written-out music for the harpsichord or lute, which often yielded a second equally important upper voice in the right hand of the harpsichord. Composers occasionally authorized a trio sonata version of the same piece, in which an additional instrument was substituted for the right hand of the harpsichord. Bach may very well have taken for granted that his Musical Offering trio sonata would undergo the reverse transformation.
