From the 2nd half of 18th century and on, the form of both flute and guitar went through several changes that finally led to the contemporary form of these two instruments. For the flute there was gradual addition of keys and differentiation in the diameter of the tube and the holes, which brought the tuning closer to the equal temperament and strengthened the tone. For the guitar double courses became single strings, with the addition of the low E string, and size and shape differences took place in the body and the neck of the instrument that also affected the sound's volume and color.
Today's program is performed on copies of instruments that were made between 1810 and 1840, approximately at the time that the presented compositions were written.
