Tereglio is a peaceful hill-top village in northern Tuscany. One street, one shop, one restaurant, a chapel, and a church, all surrounded by stunning mountain scenery. But once a year a group of flutists fill the village with music. We came from England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland but also Sweden and Italy. Both baroque flutes and modern flutes were represented together with an excellent team of accompanists, Aaron Burrows (piano), Julian Walker (piano/harpsichord) Julianna Antczak (cello) providing basso continuo.
