Super new OAE video from Lisa Besnoziuk explaining (quite briefly and simplistically) the evolution and use of the late C18th and early C19th flute. (See also her older videos in that series.)

It was interesting to hear the rationale for introducing the various keys, and the order in
which they appeared. Also interesting to see that the original 6-key flutes had a full complement
of foot keys (Eb, C#, C) but no long F or C key on the body, unlike what would usually be seen in
a 6-key flute today (i.e., including a long F and C on the body, but having only an Eb key on the
foot).

It's a very basic sketch of/intro to the history of the technical development of the flute in that period. A good one to be sure. For much fuller surveys, read Rockstro (available online here: https://www.cs.dartmouth.edu/~wbc/rockstro/), Fitzgibbon (available online here: https://archive.org/details/storyofflut ... 8/mode/2up), Philip Bate (readily available cheaply second hand) and, for an excellent, more modern/recent survey, Ardal Powell. And there's always Rick Wilson's wonderful website http://www.oldflutes.com.

Thanks, Jem, that ought to keep me busy for awhile.
