HKUST Arts Festival 2023 - The Evolution of Flute from Baroque to Modern Periods by TSANG Yat-ho

7:30pm - 9:00pm
CMA Lecture Theater (LT-L)

The flute is arguably the oldest musical instrument in the world, as it has gone through thousands of years before appearing in its modern form with the sophisticated key system. In this talk, historical flautist Tsang Yat-ho will introduce the evolution of flute from Baroque to modern periods. With his talk and demonstration, the audience will have a deeper understanding of the characteristics of the different types of flutes in terms of appearance, volume, tone and timbre etc. Tsang will also share his experience of learning period instruments and practising historically informed performance (HIP) in Hong Kong and Europe.



This event is conducted in English.
