“Quantz says” – this is how Barthold Kuijken begins his introduction to our facsimile edition. What “Quantz says” is still valid today for everyone seriously interested in the music of the Baroque and early Classical periods. What Kuijken now “says” sheds new light on this significant text for performance practice today. Besides the abundance of information contained in this “flutists’ bible”, our Quantz also has a bonus: three important additional facsimile illustrations.
