Michel Blavet was regarded as the most brilliant flute virtuoso in France, and arguably in all of Europe. His concert debut at the newly formed Concert Spirituel in 1726 produced many reports of the effect of Blavet’s playing the audience, and that his “exciting, exact, and brilliant” style of playing made the flute even more popular in France.
Our budget for this project is $10,000, and includes the recording, post-production mastering, and packaging in 4-panel digipaks. To contribute to this project click on the Flute Sonatas PayPal button and select one of the amounts or select the open contribution to give as much as you can.
