Ep. 44 - Frederick the Great
We've got a Great episode for everyone this week - a discussion of music and art surrounding the Prussian ruler, Frederick the Great (or Friedrich der Große, in the native tongue). While not as big a name as some other European rulers, Frederick the Great made a name for himself during his time, not only in his royal and military prowess, but also in art in music. A gifted flautist and flute composer himself, he supported the arts in so many ways, and we are excited to have an entire episode focused on him!
Anton Graff (1736-1813): Friedrich der Große (1781/1786)
Adolph Menzel (1815-1905): Flute Concert with Frederick the Great in Sanssouci (1850-52)
Johann Quantz (1697-1773): Selected Flute Sonatas
