The flute by Ardal Powell( Book )

14 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tells the story of the flute in the musical life of Europe and North America from the twelfth century to the present day. It is the first history to illustrate the relationship that has bound the instrument, its music, and performance technique together through eight centuries of shifting musical tastes and practices." "For the first time the role of amateur flutists receives due consideration alongside the influence of famous players and teachers. The ultimate guide to the heritage of the flute, this volume will delight both those who play the flute and those who love its music."--Jacket
The virtuoso flute-player by Johann George Tromlitz( Book )

12 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an English translation of Tutor for Playing the Flute (1791) by Johann George Tromlitz. The most explicit of the eighteenth-century tutors for flute-playing, it now serves as a record of instrumental practice as well as a useful guide to the performance of German classical music. The Tutor covers all aspects of flute playing, including intonation, articulation, flute maintenance, posture and breathing, dynamics, ornaments, musical style, cadenzas, and the construction of the flute. This edition will be an indispensable manual for players of baroque and modern flutes, and the information it contains will be invaluable for all musicians, students, and specialists interested in the historically informed performance of German classical music. The text is annotated with critical notes and all of the original music examples are newly printed in modern notation. The volume also contains a fingering chart and a historical introduction
The keyed flute by Johann George Tromlitz( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Powell's study of the late 18th-century flute places the Tromlitz flute in its context. He offers a new approach to the instrument's history, relating the design and manufacture of the flute, its tone and intonation, to contemporary evidence of playing technique, performance practice, composition style, developments in the flute market, and the flute's important place in society
Lindsay's elements of flute-playing : a study in performance practice : facsimile of the edition of 1828-30 by Thomas Lindsay( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard M. Wilson's commentary on this facsimile edition examines the techniques most deeply implicated in contemporary English evaluations of "judgement and good taste": articulation, including extensive coverage of accent and emphasis as well as the controversial double tongue; fingering, with special attention to "modern" techniques including harmonics and "sensitive", or supersharpened, notes; facility in the most "pathetic" flat keys; and a "full, bold, and commanding Tone". Ardal Powell's Introduction presents Lindsay's tutor as revealing modes of hearing and of feeling musical expression that cannot be gleaned from other sources such as musical notation and commentary on performance. The essay discusses Lindsay's acute awareness of the English flute world, the controversies over Charles Nicholson and the contrasting classical style of continental visitors, and the role of amateur flute-playing in the construction of British middle-class musical taste. --Book Jacket
