America's #1 flute specialty house since 1983.
HISTORY:The Flauto d'Amore was originally made in the Baroque era (c.1700) when wind instruments began to gain more importance. It was considered to be the most important flute among the concert and fourth flute and the basso traverso. Until recently it has been thought of as obsolete with very little repertoire written for it. However, based on the research of a British flute player named Kate Walsh, she could show that this is not true as several composers wrote specific repertoire (solo, orchestral and chamber works) for the Flauto d'Amore.
FEATURES:With an internal tube diameter of 20mm, D'amore in A is slightly thicker than the standard concert flute. Softer than the concert flute and with more clarify than the Alto Flute, this flute has a soft tone full of subtle ambiguities. Because it is light and short, it can be played with the same sense of fingering as the concert flute.
