Music for a Viennese Salon

On 8th of April at Cultural Center in Pitanga we had a great opportunity to hear for the first time on this continent an original and old instrument csakan, originated from Hungary. Natalie Houtman and Raphael Collignon searched trough old partitures to find the pieces composed for it. Most of the compositions are form the first half of the 19th century, and we heard Kraehmer, Gebauer, Schubert, Strauss, Farbach and Mozart. Two compositions were accompanied by Puducherry Flute Quartet. Technical perfection at playing instruments and choice of musical pieces were able to carry us back in time.
