Hannah Capone is currently a junior at the Head-Royce School. She has studied with Maria Tamburrino, a professional flutist, since 2018.
Hannah has learned, mastered, and performed in studio recitals sonatas by J.S. Bach, C.P.E. Bach, G. F. Handel, and F. Poulenc along with showpieces by Boehm, Busser, Hue, Perihou, Enescu, Faure, Chaminade, Doppler, and more. Having been drawn to Italian style music, she performed all three movements of Mozart’s Concerto in G Major, K.313, three cadenzas and eingangs included. She has also played in South Bay Youth Orchestra’s summer orchestra and participated in a Christmas performance at a local church.
In her studies, she has been drawn especially to transposition, transposing every tone exercise in the Trevor Wye tone book into at least three keys, including gorgeous classic melodies like “The Aquarium” and “The Swan” from Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals, Ravel’s theme from “Introduction and Allegro”, and Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune.
