Principal Flute of Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks
Performing on Sankyo Flutes Since 1987
SANKYO 18K GOLD FLUTE
“The sound character of the Sankyo flute is colourful, flexible, warm and sweet. Only the sound of the Sankyo flute reminds me of the features and the sonority of the old french flute tradition like the Lot, Bonneville or Godfroy.”
