Gareth Davies, principal flute of the LSO, has been to see Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. He has come away shocked – shocked, I tell you – to find a bass flute entering the orchestra for Turandot.
A bass flute? Everyone knows there isn’t one in Turandot.
A piece of Hollywood chicanery.
Anyway, once he calmed down, Gareth thought of some films with genuine flutes in them. He shares the clips here.
