The Small Flute Concerto In Early Eighteenth-Century London
Douglas MacMillan has been performing English small flute concerti for over 30 years and studied their history, composers, structure and contemporary performance practice. The use of fifth flute in c” (now known as the descant recorder) and sixth flute in d” was a peculiarly English phenomenon. (The vast majority of recorder music in England and Continental Europe was composed for the alto recorder.)
This book presents Douglas's findings and places them in a historical perspective.
