Traverso after W. Liebel

Boxwood or grenadilla, brass keys, B-foot
A 435 up to 440 Hz
around 1830
Chamber music and orchestra; Hummel, Schubert etc.
Special notes
Fuerstenau writes in his school that the Liebel flute is one of the most beautiful flutes. It has a more graceful, more romantic sound than the Grenser flute and is more flexible to be blown. Not that loud and not that strong in the low notes, but very harmonic together with the hammer piano. The high tones are played very easily – very important for later literature.
