about this recording:
Having continually grown more and more popular, the music for flute around 1800 reached such a climax of popularity that one even spoke of a flautomania. This refers to the flauto traverso; the recorder disappeared in the second half of the 18th century. As the flauto traverso was used by composers of the classical and early romantic period more and more as an instrument for orchestra, it changed in construction and tonal characteristics, partly due to the increasing use of keys. This recording wants to present some aspects of the tonal possibilities of the “old” flutes, thus using four different flute types with different pitch-levels as were common at that time in different places.
