Hotteterre Principles of the Flute Recorder and Oboe-Dover
Hotteterre Principles of the Flute Recorder and Oboe-Dover Hotteterre, Jaacques-Martin
Written by the finest flautist of his time, this instruction book was written for the traverse flute, recorder and oboe. The treatise – originally entitled ‘Principes de la flute’ was an important force in the competition between the flute and recorder and hastened the virtual extinction of the recorder as either an ensemble or solo instrument.
The principles has considerable practical use today, as well as being a treatise of central importance in the historical development of the flute. Most important it contains an extensive discussion of principle ornaments and embellishments of the period and their proper and tasteful use. Includes sections on the 7-hole transverse flute and recorder that will be of as valuable to today’s player as it was to their 18th-century counterpart.
