Editorial Reviews

Review

"Brown provides an excellent reference manual for flutists who wish to perform the historical flute repertory with taste and with attention to the national stylistic differences in musical cultures as diverse as those of France, Italy, and Germany. Performers on modern instruments will find much of use here.... Highly recommended." Choice

Its aim is to provide an authoritative and practical guide with evidence drawn from a variety of primary sources both directly and indirectly associated with the flute. The author give sound advice on instruments and their care, historical techniques, stylistic issues and historically informed interpretation, with examples drawn from a wide range of case studies, including Bach, Handel, Mozart and Brahms.
