Critical comment on Tromlitz, The Virtuoso Flute-Player

in Ardal Powell's translation

"Lively, informative, and eminently readable."

Eric Haas, in The American Recorder

"Not only clear but also a delight to read. Musicians . . . can benefit immensely from a close reading of Tromlitz's great opus."

Jane Bowers, in Performance Practice Review

"Undertaken with great care. . .carefully thought out, accurate and reliable. . .performers and scholars should feel indebted to [the translator] for the considerable effort that has been put into this excellent edition."

Edward R. Reilly, in Music and Letters

"A very well informed, readable and at times extremely witty edition which should appeal to all flautists. The clear layout and excellent musical examples make it a very useful reference book . . . a most welcome addition to the available flute literature . . . should be on every serious flautist's shelves."

Lisa Beznosiuk, in Pan

"Outstandingly done. . . reads with an elegance and flow that would be admirable in an original work. . . superbly produced. . essential reading to all flautists of authentic pretensions . . ."

Niall O'Louglin, in Musical Times

"Deserve[s] a place on the bookshelves of all baroque flute players, from whence it is to be hoped [it] will migrate to nearby music stands."

Nicholas Swindale, in Musick

"In short, a publication that absolutely must be owned by everyone interested in old flutes."

Denis Verroust, in La Traversière
