36 baroque preludes for traverso is a collection of pieces penned by baroque composers across countries and styles, and adapted from a variety of instruments, in addition to traverso, including recorder, violin, viola da gamba, lute, and keyboards.
The preludes have been thoughtfully selected to provide a diverse and rewarding experience for daily practice on the baroque flute. These pieces not only facilitate technical development but also offer a delightful exploration of musical expressivity, drawn from various periods and styles.
By engaging with these preludes, flutists can sharpen their improvisational skills, refine their understanding of harmonic progressions, and embrace the nuances of ornamentation — a hallmark of baroque musical aesthetics.
All this while getting to know more about the evolution of the cultural and historical context that has so much influenced the music of the whole Baroque era.
