Example text

A modern term for the type of transverse flute with six finger holes and one key that was used in the latter part of the Baroque period (ca. 1670–1750) and into the Classical period, at least by amateurs. The dates of the Baroque period are usually given as 1600–1750, but the term “Baroque flute” is not used for the keyless flute prior to about 1670, that instrument being essentially the same as the Renaissance flute. The original Baroque flutes were most often made of wood, had a conical bore, and were in three or four pieces.

The instrument was first popular in France, where the earliest French flutes tended to be ornately turned. The first tutor for the new flute was published in 1707 by Jacques Martin Hotteterre (see bib. under “Historical Methods, Treatises, and Tutors”). This and later books, notably the 1752 Versuch, a treatise by Johann Joachim Quantz, explain the articulations and ornamentation used at the time. They also advise that notes with flats are to be played at a slightly higher pitch than the enharmonic notes with sharps—for example, B is higher than A —the difference to be made with either alternate fingerings or an adjustment of the breath.

Surprisingly, the extra length may make E2 and F2 easier to produce clearly, and with good articulation, than on some flutes with a B foot. To date, very little music has been written with a low b , thus making it unnecessary for most flutists to own one. See also buzz-tone; gold flute (1). BEVELING. To cut something, such as the blowing edge, in such a way that an angle other than a right angle is formed.
