Summary "This book provides a guide to the history of the four main woodwind instruments of the Baroque: the flute, oboe, recorder and bassoon, and this is complemented by a repertoire list for each instrument. It also guides interested parties towards a basic technique for playing these instruments - a certain level of musical literacy is assumed - and it can be used by students, professionals and amateurs. Advice is also given on buying a suitable reproduction instrument from a market where virtually any Baroque instrument can now be obtained as a faithful copy."--BOOK JACKET.
