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
