Peripheries II - The oldest evidence of human musicality

Peripheries II

Dorothee Oberlinger, recorders
Friederike Potengowski, Stone Age bone flutes
Georg Wieland Wagner, Percussion
l‘arte del mondo, Werner Ehrhardt

We are drawing a bow from the oldest evidence of human musicality to the present. And these testimonies are ... flutes! Flutes made of animal bones, up to 40,000 years old.

Dorothee Oberlinger's first CD from 1998 was called "Peripheries". Influenced by her studies of new music with Walter van Hauwe in Amsterdam and medieval music with Pedro Memelsdorff in Milan, she published a CD with music from the crossroads of music history, including modern works dedicated to her - and shows the variety of meanings flute music has at music history cornerstones.

In PERIPHERIES II Dorothee Oberlinger meets Friederike Potengowski, specialist for prehistoric bone flutes, and percussionist Georg Wieland Wagner, who caused a stir with their mystical album "the edge of times".

Together with the ensemble l'arte del mondo, the artists have developed a breathtaking kaleidoscope of sounds throughout human history. The story of the flute is also told - as human breath through time. And popular "hits" will not be forgotten...
