The rarely heard renaissance transverse flute and the lute (pictured) will be showcased in an evening of 16th and early 17th-century chamber music entitled RENAISSANCE FLUTE and LUTE on Friday, May 15 at 7:00 PM at St. Augustine's in-the-Woods Episcopal Church in Freeland on Whidbey Island.
Jeffrey Cohan is one of very few flutists who regularly perform solo music for the renaissance transverse flute, which is softer, much sweeter and more supple than its modern decendant. Jeffrey will team up with renaissance lutenist John Lenti, who is constantly in motion all around the country playing lutes and guitars of all sorts, in this first program in the Salish Sea Early Music Festival's Spring Festival of three contrasting performances of renaissance, baroque and Beethoven-era chamber music.
The 2015 Salish Sea Early Music Festival includes six programs of 16th to 19th-century chamber music on period instruments on Whidbey Island, with special guests from Berlin and Lübeck, Germany, and from around the Northwest and the United States and Canada.
