Historic Flute Recordings

Robert Bigio's Historic Flute Recordings

Dear Flute Lovers,

Robert Bigio has done one of many hugely marvellous things in the flute world, most recently by putting up marvellous free recordings to listen to, of some of the world's greatest flute players.

Listen to Historic Flute Recordings

These flute legends live again through re-recording the old LPs and giving some background information on each flutist.
Here are some of my favourites with links to the sheetmusic:

My favorite is the recording of Gareth Morris who show how beautiful and expressive the flute tone can be will minimal vibrato.

Dear Deb,
I know what you mean.
It's taken YEARS to even begin to find these recordings and now, Ta Da, they are spine-tinglingly available. Fabulouso for sure!
