Enrico Casularo transverse flute & director
Filippo Ruge (1725-1767) was born in Rome, where he was a famous traverso player
and a member of the prestigious Congregation of St.
Cecilia. Later he settles in Paris, where he became a fashionable flautist and composer, soloist in the “Concerts spirituels”, orchestra conductor,
and editor and promoter of Italian music in the French capital.
In Paris he performed his own symphony “La tempête suivie du calme” (for strings and horns!), one of the most striking examples of French
musical descriptivism. Other works on this new recording are two delightful arias for one resp. two sopranos and strings, a flute sonata and
the flute concerto in G, music written in the transition from Baroque to Classical, charming, brilliant and innovating!
Played on copies of original instruments by flautist/ conductor/musicologist Enrico Casularo and Ensemble Flatus, consisting of strings and harpsichord.
