PLEASE - BE AWARE - and continue to be cautious when online ...because they're at it again.
We've learned that there appears to be yet another rash of *spam/spoof emails* widely appearing in people's inboxes in recent weeks, all across the country emails which have every APPEARANCE of having been sent directly to YOU from someone at any number of reputable, well established, and well known flute-related companies BUT INSTEAD they are actually spoofs and pure spam, some asking or directing you to look at what turn out to be very dangerous attachments, -- and all of this is. simply put: "mischief that's hiding itself in flute-clothing"!
We've received some of them ourselves as well -- even had emails which claim to originate from "flutenet.com" (which absolutely cannot be the genuine article because, quite simply - it's not logistically possible for us to send anybody an email from "flutenet.com"!) But we're only one of an apparently increasing number of otherwise respectable flute-related names who have been spoofed in emails in recent weeks and odds are, if you have an email inbox, you've gotten a few of these as well
SO THOUGHT A REMINDER ABOUT IT MIGHT BE WORTHWHILE: Do NOT automatically assume that the listed "sender" of an email is indeed the actual author and "sender" of *any* particular email -- that goes for your own relatives and friends as well as "flute -related companies"!
If there's any doubt -- any doubt at all -- check it out! Ask about it. Let the "sender" know what you received - "in their name" - and ask if it was indeed something they actually did send out... you'll be doing both them and yourself a favor - and defeat the intent of the spammers!

Music: Trying to track down a flute and classical guitar duet anthology that was published in a Zen-on edition in the '70's but the piece I am particularly interested in is a SONATA in D (all four movements) by HANDEL - as TRANSCRIBED BY LOUIS MOYSE. The Zen-on edition may have been pirated so it may have been published by Schirmer or someone else. I don't know if the original piece was in D or not. If you know the whereabouts of this elusive piece, please contact Robert Ross at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Basically we had a person that made the body right up to where the keys were to be made. There were two workers made keys, one for the head joints. There was a lady that did cleaning, defiring keys and various soldered parts. The cups were made without any impressions and then after they were buffed then she would press the the key cup design in the cup. There were two padders and then the flutes went to the head tester. Mark Thomas was our vice president and his responsibilities were sales and also directing the Heritage from a professionals point of view. I must say that was really one of my best jobs ever.")

The Rudall and Rose Catalogue is a research project aimed at locating and databasing all the still-exisiting "simple- system" flutes made by this company.
Although a fire circa 1860 destroyed all the companys records from the time, it is thought they had made some 7,200 instruments of this style before turning their efforts to the various Boehm, Carte and Radcliffe key systems (and moving away from the 4 - 10+ keyed flutes, the "simple system" flutes, as they're called), surely there are many still left - but no one until now has undertaken to find out.
David Migoya is spearheading a volunteer, non-profit, "labor of love" effort to locate and catalog any remaining examples of these particular instruments - the "simple system" flutes of Rudall and Rose. He's already sharing his findings on his website: www.RudallRose.com - and he hopes you might be willing to share too!
(Already it is worth a visit - there is a wealth of information there about these flutes and their makers, and also some wonderful pictures!)
SO - If you happen to have - and/or - know of any exisiting Rudall and Rose's "simple system" flutes - or even if you're simply curious - please take a look at the website, and do contact David about it!
The Flutists' Family Tree is a project that traces the lineage, from student to teacher, back through the past 250 years of transverse flute playing. Currently, it links about 1,700 flutists genealogically with their ancestors all the way back through such historical figures as Georges Barrere, Paul Taffanel, Francois Devienne and Michel Blavet. Its aim is to provide connections between musicians, renew relationships between students and teachers, increase awareness of our common history, and provide a starting point for research into the pedagogical traits of important flute teachers.
This project depends upon the help of the entire flute community, through submission of personal information, private research into the heritage of specific teachers, publicity and funding. It is inclusive of all flutists - regardless of professional musical status or performance ability. Almost 90% of all flutists in the United States today can trace their musical ancestry through William Kincaid - whether they play in the finest orchestras or just started taking lessons!
To have your information (or that of your
teachers and students) included in the Flutists'
Family Tree, simply respond with the following
Info to send: Name, birth location and date, education (degree obtained, institution, date), primary teacher (this is the teacher you feel has had the most impact upon your playing), other teachers, and contact e-mail or home address for you. Optional information may include performance organizations and college/public school/private teaching, recordings, or any other biographical data you would like to include. This will, no doubt, be edited for content and space considerations in public displays, but the entirety of the information will be available for the purpose of research. If you have any information about your teachers' teachers as well, this would be extremely helpful.
Feel free to distribute this invitation to other flutists, and plan to attend the next NFA Convention to view the project!
The Doubler's Corner is for listings of instruments other than flutes - any and all kinds of instrumental listings are welcome here. Listings in the Doubler's Corner run at the same rates as our regular listings. This opportunity is provided in recognition of the fact that many flute players are, in fact, multi-talented. (...Flute players also have many friends!)
