A Dictionary for the Modern Flutist presents clear and concise
definitions of more than 1,500 common flute-related terms that a
player of the Boehm-system flute may encounter. Fully illustrated
with more than 100 images, the entries contain descriptions of
words related to all aspects of the flute: flute types, flute
parts, flute repair, playing techniques, acoustics, articulations,
intonation, common ornaments, flutemaking, flute history, flute
music books, and more. Susan Maclagan has thoroughly researched and
classified each term, including important flute words that have
caused confusion or not been clearly defined previously, listing
them alphabetically with concise, in-depth definitions. Carefully
labeled illustrations for many flute types, parts, mechanisms, and
accessories help to make the definitions easier to visualize. The
entries also consist of brief biographies of more than 50
significant names in the flute community worldwide. Several
appendixes provide further information on subjects like flute
classifications, types of modern Boehm-system flutes and their
parts, key and tone hole names, head joint options, and orchestra
and opera audition excerpts. Two articles, Checking Your Flute
Tuning and Scale by the flutist and pedagogue Trevor Wye_who also
contributed the foreword_and Flute Clutches by the historian David
Shorey, are also included, as well as an extensive bibliography.
