Theobald Boehm

Boehm (1794-1881) was a renowned Bavarian flautist, composer, and Goldsmith. Between 1821-1831, he travelled throughout Europe giving performances of his own compositions, performed on flutes made in his own workshop. Boehm experimented with various new concepts in flute mechanics and developed/revised the cylindrical Boehm flute over many years. His flute design became the standard form of the modern flute which French and American workshops later adopted. With the modernisations Boehm contributed to the new flute model, numerous composers became more adventurous in what they wrote for the flute.
