This week virtuoso flutist Robert Stallman and renowned harpsichordist Edwin Swanborn invite you to join them at Leipzig's famed Cafe Zimmermann for Obbligato Sonatas for Flute and Harpsichord. Featured composer is Johann Sebastian Bach, who has also brought along a pickup group of musician friends to flesh out the evening.
Music lovers, professionals and amateurs are all welcome to share delicious coffee, stimulating conversation, spirits and the stories behind the great music. Saturday, February 23, 11:30 am to 12:30 pm
Jill's guest this week is flutist Robert Stallman. His new CD, The Nightingale in Love, features works for solo flute and ensemble from the late French Baroque era, and was recently released on the Bogner's Cafe label.
Mr. Stallman's unique sound has repeatedly captured the attention of music lovers, ever since his mentor, Jean-Pierre Rampal, judged him early on to be "one of the most gifted musicians I have ever encountered."
Flutist Robert Stallman won the George W. Chadwick Medal from the New England Conservatory of Music and received a Koussevitsky Fellowship and the C.D. Jackson Prize at Tanglewood. As a Fulbright Scholar, he studied in Paris with Jean-Pierre Rampal and since then has developed an international reputation as performer, master teacher, editor and arranger who has done much to expand the flute repertoire.
