Re: Barrere and his platinum flute

I read that he didn't really like that flute. Too heavy to hold. But he was obliged to appear in public with it.

Debost's book is fantastic, as is "Kinkaidiana" by John Krell.

I have an Emeritus, and I love it! It looks quite ordinary but was made in the 1970s by some big-shots who worked at Armstrong at the time, who went on to make flutes on their own. Plays really well and sounds really good. $400 is a bargain if it is in good shape.
