Editorial Reviews


"This translation is a valuable resource for any wind player, musician or interested reader. We are indebted to Ardal Powell." Jean Kershaw, Early Music Newsletter

"Ardel Powell's translation of Johann George Tromlitz's Detailed and Thorough Tutor for Playing the Flute...presents an accessible view of musical performance in 1791. It is valuable to modern flutists, one-keyed spcialists, and scholars and performers of late eighteenth-century music. Further, Tromlitz's strong opinions on a variety of musically related topics permit us to share in the life of one of Germany's most prominent flutists, teachers, and instrument designers. Powell's translation is in a comfortable, informal, and tightly-paced style; it is quite readable and very clear...." Leslie Ellen Brown, The Eighteenth Century
