The history of the transverse flute(s), a detailed expalanation with examples

We all know the modern concert flute and the Baroque traverso, but the path between the two has barely been charted. Between 1790 and 1850, the keyed flute - an instrument with three to fourteen keys, which made the flautist’s life easier - had its heyday. Numerous types were in circulation until they were superseded in the mid-19th century by the Boehm flute. Anne Pustlauk delved into the archives and read just about everything there is to read about the repertoire and the historical performance practice of this meanwhile rare instrument. This autumn she defends her Doctorate in the Arts at the Free University of Brussels, and in Bruges we get to hear the resounding results of her research. In her SCOOP concert on October 16, she will perform a selection of flute quartets. During this lecture performance, she will also give an in-depth explanation, illustrated with numerous examples, from, among others, Boehm and Schubert.
