Dorothea Seel has engaged intensively both with the instruments and also with the playing techniques and sound aesthetics of 19th-century flutes and presented her findings in her artistic and scientific dissertation Der Diskurs um den Klang der Flöte im 19. Jahrhundert (“the discourse about the sound of the flute in the 19th century”, Kunstuniversität Graz 2017, in preparation for publication). Evaluation of teaching works put her on the track of forgotten playing techniques.

These practices, many of which would meet with the disapproval of modern-day exponents, include overlapping of notes, a glissando effect that the keys of modern instruments no longer permit. Dorothea Seel uses this and other techniques on the present recording. In congenial partnership with Christoph Hammer, she also sheds new light on the extraordinarily varied sound world of the 19th century and puts proven theory into virtuoso practice. She challenges the conventions that govern our listening and admirably illustrates the potential of research-based period performance practice. Above all, however, the works of Johann Nepomuk Hummel sound so utterly new, fresh and stimulating.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
