Preface:
      The virtuoso flutist Giulio Briccialdi was born on March 2, 1818 in Termi, Italy, fifty miles north of Rome. He began studying the flute with his father, but upon his father's death moved to Rome to avoid family pressure to follow a career in the priesthood. In 1832, at the age of 14, he entered the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia where he studied flute and composition, and in 1835, following several years of teaching flute at the Accademia moved to Naples where he was flute teacher for the royal family. In 1841, recognized as Europe's settling in London the following year. He became a director of Rudall and Rose, an instrument manufacturer of high regard, creating innovations in mechanical development for woodwind instruments that are still in use today, including the flute's thumb Bb key. After several years he relocated to Florence where he was appointed Professor of Flute at the conservatory. He remained there until his death on December 17, 1881. Most of his compositions are for the flute and include at least fantasias, three concerti and his most famous work, the theme and variation “Il Carnevale di Venezia.”
