About this Recording


A master of the flute demonstrates the varied possibilities of his instrument. Wolfgang Schulz, principal flautist of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra since 1970, is one of the best known and most active flautists in the world, and has worked together with conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Leonard Bernstein, Karl Böhm, Lorin Maazel, Zubin Mehta, Seiji Ozawa, André Previn and Horst Stein. He is also the flautist of the Vienna-Berlin Chamber Music Ensemble. His repertoire includes works from the baroque to the modern and he has a particular interest in the music of contemporary Austrian composers. In the booklet Wolfgang Schulz describes the history, character, function and mythology of his instrument. This is the fifth part of a chamber music series with leading players of the Vienna Philharmonic.
