Giulio Briccialdi-Flautist/Composer

Briccialdi (1818-1881) was an Italian virtuoso flautist, professor of flute, composer and flute technician and innovator who made significant contributions to the modern-day flute. In particular, he invented the Bb thumb key for the Boehm system flute.

Born in Terni, Italy, he began his flute studies with his father and continued in Rome. He rapidly gained recognition as an esteemed performer securing notable positions including flute professor for the Count of Syracuse, brother of King Ferdinand of Bourbon of Naples.  In 1871, he became a flute professor at the Florence Conservatory, where his own flute model was adopted.

As a composer, Briccialdi focused primarily on creating paraphrases and variations of operatic themes, a genre immensely popular among audiences. He wrote a vast array of compositions including vocal music, symphonic works and operas. He also wrote an incredible 183 works for flute for the following combinations:

Flute and Piano: Works on Operatic Themes
