Frederich the Great, C. P. E. Bach, Benda, Quantz, Schaffrath…
A Prussian King Friedrich the Great, in that time known as Fritz, spent his free time composing and playing the flute. He gathered some of the leading musicians of his time in Sanssouci Summer Palace in Postdam. The Croatian Baroque Ensemble presents under the guidance of a flautist Ana Benić music from his careless court, whose emotional style is a visual image of contradictions of the king’s life.
