Gustav Scheck Gustav Scheck (1901–1984) was born in Munich and studied in Freiburg. He held a number of principal flute positions, including in the Hamburg State Opera, and taught the flute at the Berlin Hochschule and later at the Hochschule in Freiburg, which he helped to found. Scheck was one of the first players to develop an interest in performing on the Baroque flute. He founded a Baroque ensemble, Kammermusikkreis Scheck-Wenzinger, with the cellist and viola da gamba player August Wenzinger. Scheck was noted for his editions of early music for the flute. He made many recordings, both of early and contemporary music, including a recording of Walter Gieseking’s Sonatine with Gieseking himself playing the piano.
