Editorial Reviews


"Timely...The book covers many important matters...and will be of particular value to performers of early music (and not just on the flute). Its great strength is its synthesis of information, developments and research.....Scrupulous in scholarship and generously illustrated with photographs."--Musical Times

Format: Paperback
This book is packed full of information about the different periods including the makers, pros and cons and information about the care of the instruments. It also included information about buying antique and replica flutes, the pros and cons and the people who made them.
It helped me with the history of my instrument for A level music and I would recommend it to all students who would like to find out about the history of this instrument.
