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.

Haydn Trumpet Concerto on a Vintage Næse Fløjte

How could I have missed such a masterpiece!?! This Danish video, dating of 2013, is a rarity on several points. First of all, 'næse fløjte' videos from Denmark are rather scarce. But also classical music played with a nose flute, and particularly when the musician uses props like a tuxedo in the vid. "Haydns trompetkoncert på næsehorn" ('Haydn Trumpet Concerto on a Nose Horn' [næsehorn means rhinoceros in Danish]). And even rarer, when the piece is played on a vintage instrument!

Indeed, the title page shows the instrument, and it clearly is a German oldie, with its pair of folded flaps (no rivets). In fact, it is exactly the same instrument than the first German vintage nose flutes I acquired some years ago, from a... Danish antiquarian.

My German vintage Nasenflöten (Paul Brunner's?):
Here is the video, from Hans Wendelboe Bøcher's YT channel:
