"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.
