    Flutes and Pipes, Then and Now

    When: Tuesday, 5/14/2019 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

    Where: Albert and Janet Schultz Cultural Arts Hall (Bldg F)

    OFJCC Palo Alto JCC

    Listen to period flutes and bagpipes, as a dynamic flute duo from Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra guides listeners through a journey of gorgeous music written for two baroque flutes by composers such as Hotteterre, Telemann and WF Bach. There will be side trips to "visit" the sounds of bagpipes, renaissance flute and the modern metal flute. Discover the variety of sounds and moods these instruments can evoke, and learn how the instruments evolved over time.
    Performers: Mindy Rosenfeld and Stephen Schultz, flutes and pipes 

    Mindy Rosenfeld is fluent in the music of several eras and is a founding member of the highly respected Baltimore Consort with whom she tours extensively. Since 1989, she has been a member of San Francisco's Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra ("the nation's premier early music ensemble"—New York Times), where she has performed under director Nicholas McGegan and guest conductors William Christie, Jordi Savall, Gustav Leonhardt, Andrew Parrott, Andrew Manze, Bernard Labadie and Trevor Pinnock. She has recorded extensively and appeared at Lincoln Center's Mostly Mozart Festival, the Berkeley Early Music Festival, BBC Proms (Royal Albert Hall), Concertgebouw (Amsterdam) and both Carnegie and Disney Halls. 

    Ms. Rosenfeld is principal flutist and soloist with both the Symphony of the Redwoods (California) and the Mendocino Music Festival (California). As a guest artist she has performed with American Bach Soloists (San Francisco), Portland's Trinity Consort, Magnificat (San Francisco), the San Jose Symphonic Choir, San Francisco Bach Choir, Golden Gate Men's Choir, Ukiah Symphony (as soloist), Modesto Symphony and numerous other Bay Area ensembles.

    Ms. Rosenfeld earned a BA in flute performance from the Peabody Conservatory (Baltimore) and an MA in modern and Baroque flute performance from San Francisco Conservatory.

    Stephen Schultz, called "among the most flawless artists on the Baroque flute" by the San Jose Mercury News and "flute extraordinaire" by the New Jersey Star-Ledger, plays solo and principal flute with the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and Musica Angelica. He also performs with other leading early music groups such as Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Apollo's Fire, Portland Baroque Orchestra, Wiener Akademie and Chatham Baroque. Concert tours have taken him throughout Europe and South America with featured appearances at the Musikverein in Vienna, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Royal Albert Hall in London, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, Carnegie Hall and the Library of Congress.

    A graduate of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Holland, Schultz also holds several degrees from the California Institute of the Arts and the California State University of San Francisco. Currently he is an associate teaching professor in music history and flute at Carnegie Mellon University and director of the Carnegie Mellon Baroque Orchestra. Mr. Schultz has also been a featured faculty member of the Jeanne Baxtresser International Flute Master Class at Carnegie Mellon University and has taught at the Juilliard School and the International Baroque Institute at Longy School of Music.
