Abstract (Summary)

Johann Joachim Quantz was a leading flutist, flute teacher, flute maker, and composer in the eighteenth century. He was most acclaimed for serving as top court musician along with C.P.E. Bach under Frederick the Great. Sadly his music and his instruments were deemed outdated by his contemporaries after his death. But since the revival of Baroque music at the end of the nineteenth century, early music and historical instruments have gained prominence, and Quantz has been restored to his rightful place as one of the most influential flute figures in music history. This project delves into Quantz’s life, work, and legacy.
