We are an international woodwinds ensemble. We specialize in historical instruments and we look for new sounds in the music of the nineteenth century.
WHO WAS CHRISTIAN GOTTFRIED GEISLER?
According to the Nieuw Nederlandsch Biografisch Woordenboek Christian Gottfried Geisler (1801-1884) was a maker of woodwind instruments who presented in 1849 a flute in the exhibition of national industry in Delft (Cat. nr. 299) and in 1861 participated in the industrial exhibition in Haarlem (Cat. nr. 417), where he won a medal for his work as flute maker. He first appears in the adress records of Amsterdam in 1841/1842.
Some of his surviving instruments rest nowadays in the Rijkmuseum in Amsterdam, in the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague and in the Edinburgh University Collection of Historic Musical Instruments.
