OVERVIEW

The d'Aamore is enjoying a comeback.

The Altus Flute d'Amore is a true collector's instrument. It was a commonly played instrument in the 18th century, though you rarely see new repertoire written for it today. Despite the lack of repertoire devoted to the d'amore, it has been experiencing a comeback since the 1960s particularly among jazz players and doublers.

The flute d'amore has the projection, response, and flexibility of a C flute, but it has an extraordinarily silken, smooth, and dark sound more similar to the sound of an alto flute. These characteristics make is well suited for jazz. Also used as a classical solo instrument, the flute d'amore charms the audience.
The Altus Flute d'Amore is available pitched in Bb or A. It is longer than a standard C flute and has a larger bore. The flute comes standard with closed holes.
