Your World Should
be a Flute World

The history of the flute is filled with intrigue. It was first made of wood in ancient times, but has since been produced from silver in conjunction with other types of metal. Its lowest note is middle C and it has a range of about three octaves.

Big names in this remarkable instrument’s development were Johann Joachim Quantz (1697-1773) and Theobald Boehm (1794-1881). The latter virtuoso introduced his now famous ‘ring key’ system into the flute in 1832.

Other types of flutes include the alto and bass flutes. The former was developed in the latter part of the nineteenth century.

Similar instruments to the flute include the fife, constructed with a narrower bore, and a piccolo, sounding an octave higher than a flute. None other than Beethoven used the piccolo famously in his Egmont Overture (Opus 84).
