Pietro Grassi Florio (1738–1795) is one of the best-known names among flutists of the 18th century. This book traces in detail his working life in London as a performer and composer, and his involvement along with his wife with the invention of six-keyed flute. The second part of the book contains 60 pages of musical examples, including many complete movements, illustrating the music that Florio both performed and composed.
