Here is a veritable encyclopedia of the flute. During his long professional career, De Lorenzo has found the time to do intensive research in the field of the flute throughout the world. This research, combined with his own personal associations with the greats of the flute world, provided him with the material for his book. There will here be found hundreds of biographies of flutists and composers of flute music (amateur as well as professional), some of which can be found in no other existing dictionary of music. There is here a history of the instrument and the story of its evolution at the hands of the great instrument makers. There is a storehouse of information about the flute and flutists from ancient times to today, studded with odd facts, unusual facts, illuminating facts, as well as a veritable mine of anecdotes.This, then, is the indispensable book for every lover of the flute. It is also an inexhaustible source of information and entertainment for every lover of food music. For half a century, Leonardo De Lorenzo has been one of the world's foremost flutists. He has filled the chair of first flutist with such famous organizations as the New York Philharmonic, the Minneapolis Symphony, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Rochester Philharmonic. He has also distinguished himself as one of the outstanding teachers of the flute of our time, having been associated with the Eastman School of Music, and having taught privately an entire generation of flutists. His many published works, including woodwind chamber music, are adopted all over the world including the Paris Conservatory.With My Complete Story of the Flute, Mr. Lorenzo makes an auspicious bow as an author. But for many years he has contributed penetrating articles on the flute and on flutists to leading music journals.
