Zohn, Headshot (classical flute_ print).jpg

Flutist Steven Zohn performs on historical flutes with many ensembles along the east coast and has recorded music by C.P.E. Bach, J.S. Bach, Boismortier, Handel, Quantz, Telemann, and Vivaldi. Among his recent recordings is the world premiere of recently discovered flute duets by Telemann, and a forthcoming first recording of the composer’s moral cantatas with soprano Julianne Baird. From 1995 to 2004 he served as founding Artistic Director of the period-instrument orchestra Publick Musick. His contribution to the study and performance of early music has been recognized by the American Musicological Society with its Noah Greenberg Award. In addition to his concertizing, this past season he lectured at The Juilliard School’s graduate program in historical performance and judged the National Flute Association’s Baroque Flute Artist Competition. Also active as a musicologist, he has published widely on eighteenth-century topics, especially on Telemann and the Bach family, and is Laura H. Carnell Professor of Music History at Temple University’s Boyer College of Music and Dance. When he is not performing, lecturing, or writing, he enjoys playing with his seven-year-old son, Elliott.
