Looking for something a little more unique than your typical wedding string quartet? Yes, add that unique flair by adding FLUTE! Elegant, sophisticated and fun, this combination gives you a little something different. The flute can play anything that the violin can play, so…out comes the first violin and in comes the flutist! Perfect (at least, in my world!!!)
Two Baroque Flutes, Harpsichord and Viola da Gamba
This historical instrument ensemble is comprised of instruments from the Baroque period (1600-1750). The sonorities and pureness of tone is sophisticated and mesmerizing. The Baroque Period also offers us a wealth of repertoire for this combination of instruments. Picture the historical flutists: Frederick the Great, (King of Prussia) and Johann Joachim Quantz (Frederick’s flute teacher) performing with CPE Bach at the harpsichord, circa 1750! This music is certainly “fit for a KING!” Historical information and lecture/recitals are also available.
The Rauschenberg Ensemble (flute, violin, cello and piano)
The Rauschenberg Ensemble has been performing since 2006 at the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery on the campus of Edison College, Ft. Myers. Performing repertoire from the Baroque to Comtempory, this versatile ensemble can provide lovely background music or a lively and imformative recital. We not only love to play, but enjoy educating our audience regarding our selected repertoire and their composers.
