the revolutionary Flute

 by Leonardo da Vinci

produced by Cultural Association Leonardo da Vinci

of Sion, Switzerland

The fissure flutes of the foglio 1106r of the Codex Atlanticus are fully functional

instruments which have never before been built faithfully to Leonardo's idea.

Made in 2019 for the Cultural Research Association L. de Vinci from Sion (Switzerland)

by the renomated recorder maker Giacomo Andreola of Sondrio, these flutes will

revolutionize the history of the recorder: by replacing the holes with one or two fissures,

Leonardo gives the musician the possibility of passing from one note to another

continuously by the movement of the palms with the technique of “glissando” as explained:

"Questi due fluti non fanno le mutazioni delle loro voci a salti,

anzi nel modo proprio della voce umana.

E fassi con il muovere la mano su e giù, come alla tromba torta, e massime nel zufolo.

E possi fare 1/8 ed 1/16 di voce, e tanto quanto a te piace."   (L. da Vinci)
