The Hotteterre family was extremely influential in the development of woodwind instruments in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The most famous of them, Jacques-Martin, was a talented flutist, important pedagogue and prolific composer for the instrument. Musical Offering's flutist Sarah Paysnick and harpsichordist Matthew Hall will present a recital featuring music by Hotteterre, his colleagues, and the virtuosos who followed in their footsteps at the French Court and Paris Grand Opera.
