Rear View Mirror: A Contemporary Glance on Flauto D’Amore

Ginevra Petrucci, Flauto D’Amore


Rear View Mirror is a project involving the creation of a new repertoire for the flauto d’amore, an

instrument that, in its modern form, is completely unknown. This instrument, while originally

belonging to the Baroque era, received a modern prototype thanks to a commission by Gian-Luca

Petrucci to flute maker Albert Cooper. The instrument, which is produced in very limited quantities,

has no contemporary repertoire: Rear View Mirror is the first ever performance of new works written

specifically for the flauto d’amore. The concert features the world premiere of Nathan Hudson’s

Textured Air, Gleb Kanasevich’s don’t wake them up, Liliya Ugay’s Sweet Suite and Max Grafe’s Trio

Sonata. Rear View Mirror engages composers of multi-faceted backgrounds and will provide the

musical community with a new sound to explore and employ in contemporary music settings. This

event will mark the first of a multifold project that is already spanning over the next three years.
