It is the oldest musical instrument in the world, the symbol of archadian bliss, bucolic celebrations, meditative contemplation: the flute combines familiar and distant cultures and is the ideal instrument to take us on a journey. The route is determined by Dorothee Oberlinger, the star of the recorder players: inspired by the ’Great Travel’ of early modern times – pilgrimage, diplomatic missions or trade trips that take us to Venice, through Constantinople to China and ’Taklama’. We experience early music, folk music and new music, and immerse ourselves in the layers of melody and sound of a paradise made of air.
