This blog is dedicated to the sublime instruments called nose flutes and which produce the most divine sound ever. We have chosen to discard all the native models from S. Pacific and Asia, for they need fingering to be played. We'll concentrate on "buccal cavity driven" nose flutes : the well patented and trademarked metal or plastic ones, plus, by a condemnable indulgence, some wooden craft or home-made productions.

L. Mozart (well, no) Toy Symphony

Our friend Herman Vandecauter just released a new video in which he plays the Leopold Mozart's Toy Symphony (Kindersinfonie). In fact, « Recent research on a newly found manuscript suggests the Austrian benedictine monk Edmund Angerer (1740–1794) to be the author. » (wiki).
In this video, Herman made a nice arrangement for tenor ukulele, nose flute, canary whistle, chinese xu, tambourine and water whistle!

  1. I love the way the ukelele is played here, as it sounds like a lute, which is a fabulous instrument to accompany the nose flute.
