The Emperor’s Flute or The Memoir of Charles Defutois – A Novel of the Eighteenth Century by Thomas Thibeault

“The Emperor’s Flute” is a riveting story of J.J. Quantz’ relationship with Frederick the Great. As his flute teacher and long-time mentor, he was about the only person in the kingdom who could criticize the royal flaws and keep still his head. The narrator in this historical novel is the royal French tutor, who almost loses his head. This story takes the reader into the musical world of the 18th Century court and reveals the life of a court musician.

‘The Emperor’s Flute is a wonderfully absorbing insight into the real, intertwining lives of Frederick the Great and his flute mentor, Johann Quantz. The book’s engaging plot buzzes along, unfolding through the characteristic humanity of Thomas Thibeault’s realism, humor and optimism. Ultimately The Emperor’s Flute is about how cunning, quiet courage, and simple kindness can defeat the nastiest human behaviour.’  Stephen Preston – Professor of Baroque Flute and Dance

‘The Emperor’s Flute is an imaginative journey into the inner lives of the Frederick the Great and his flute teachter J.J. Quantz. These historical characters are brought to life with a vibrant mix of subtle conversation and remarkable events.’                   Amara Guitry – Professor of Flute
