"The Cahusac Connection" Richard Wyton, flute
"The Cahusac Connection"
an evening with The Hanoverian Ensemble
Richard Wyton, flute Lisa Rautenberg, violin Arthur Fiacco, cello
Jonathan Vaughn, organ & harpsichord
Music by Handel, Haydn, Stanley and Telemann performed on original flutes from the eighteenth-century workshop of Thomas Cahusac (1714-1796), one of the greatest woodwind makers of 18th-century England. The largely-English program draws from works very likely played on these particular instruments in the eighteenth-century. Performing are Richard Wyton, flute; Lisa Rautenberg, violin; Jonathan Vaughn, organ and Arthur Fiacco, cello.
The flutes for this program are generously lent from the collection of Mark Leone, a prominent American collector and conservator of historical flutes.
This concert is dedicated to the Reverend Canon Sydney Woodd-Cahusac (1918 - 2004). A beloved member of the Christ Church Clergy, the Greenwich community and a direct descendant of Thomas Cahusac, Sydney is the “Cahusac Connection”.
The 7:00 program is preceeded at 6:30 by a conversation with Mark Leone, John Solum - author of The Early Flute (Oxford University Press) and Richard Wyton.
