Mahaut , Antoine 3 Sonatas for flute and piano (Broekmans)
Born in Namur, Belgium, the flautist Antoine Mahaut wrote not only his wellknown Méthode but also numerous sonatas, duets and concertos for the flute. With the exception of the six sonatas, op. 1, all the solo sonatas survive in manuscript. Three sonatas from the library in Stockholm, published in modern print for the first time, make it clear why Antoine was given to calling himself Antonio. He spent part of his life in Amsterdam, where he probably earned a living by giving flute lessons.
