Songs for the Sun Flute - Part 1
Description of the
Engelberger five tone flute, with recessed grip
It has been developed especially for the entry on wind instruments. Thus, in the proportions of the sound forming areas, it differs clearly from the construction of traditional recorders, but without losing or even hindering their possibilities of clear articulation.
It is incomprehensible that the area of articulation is often neglected, although it has long been known that the tone makes the music. And what does a melody sound like if it consists of nothing but notes with the same sound? Our language also lives through the colourfulness of articulation. And when we tell children a fairy tale, for example, we use all these shades of our language to let the little listeners experience the story properly.
If music is to live in children, it is important that they can experience it.
Nor would it be understandable that at an age when children have already learned to articulate sounds (language), this ability should not be used and developed for music.
For this reason, great importance has been attached to the possibility of free and broad articulation in the development and construction of each individual instrument. Since the Engelberger Fünftonflöte is aimed at beginners, however, the tonal range was deliberately limited in order to achieve a concentration of teaching on the basics. Thus the children are not distracted from the search for small, neatly played and tangible melodies by a large range of tones that they cannot grasp.
