Baroque Flute

dennerPDF of L'Art de Préluder

The Baroque flute, also called the German flute or traverso, is made of wood and comes in three or four parts, depending upon the model, maker and time period.  It has one key (or two keys in the case of the special Quantz flute).  The very first keyed flute is generally  ascribed to the Hotteterre family in Southern France; this family of wind instrument makers was extremely well known.  This same family gave rise to the famous Jacques (le Romain) Hotteterre, the composer and pedagogue of the one-key flute, recorder, oboe and musette.
