About the album

During the 17th and 18th centuries, Paris was the European center of development in the field of woodwind instrument construction. Out of the rich instrument selection of the Renaissance period, individual instruments from diverse instrument families were selected, remodelled, and perfected in the light of the new demands placed upon them. The recorder of the late Baroque also experienced significant changes: it was more narrowly mensurated; the conical bore was more strongly tapered; the range was extended to over two octaves; the tone became brighter and sweeter (flauto dolce). Out of the large flute family, the alto flute developed into a solo instrument, upon which quite virtuosic demands were occasionally made. Nevertheless, the alto flute gradually gave way to the transverse flute, and by the middle of the century the alto flute had completely disappeared from public music life, since it could no longer satisfy the changing demands of the time, especially in regard to dynamics.
