Ensemble Galanterie Rehearsing "An Evening With Wilhelmine"
John Schneiderman ~ baroque lute
Jeffrey Cohan ~ baroque flute
William Skeen ~ baroque cello
Frederick the Great's sister Wilhelmine was instrumental in transforming Bayreuth into a great center of culture, where she employed Adam Falckenhagen, who wrote exquisite Concerti for obbligato baroque lute, baroque flute and cello. Wilhelmine played lute and her husband was a flutist, as was his brother-in-law Frederick the Great, who was surely familiar with these concerti for three instruments.
