Mary Oleskiewicz is professor of flute at University of Massachusetts, Boston. After winning first prizes in both the National Flute Association’s Baroque Flute Artist and Doctoral Dissertation Competitions, Mary Oleskiewicz quickly established herself as an international performer of historical flutes and the leading authority on the flutist, theorist, and composer Johann Joachim Quantz. Her highly acclaimed essays, editions, and recordings have focused on Quantz, King Frederick “the Great,” and members of the Bach family. She has released five CDs, and her forthcoming CD of Bach’s complete flute sonatas and partita will be released on the Etcetera label. The Bach CD presents original interpretations of Bach’s flute works, including a new completion for the fragmentary first movement of the A-major sonata.
