News 2011: (NL) Simon Polak - Words on the The Ehrenfeld Early Flute Collection

Contributed by Admin on Jan 23, 2011 - 10:33 PM

The Beukers, Tassi, Wijne, Kirst and Haka originals all are found in the Ehrenfeld collection, therefore some information about this collection and my relation with it here!

Mrs. Ehrenfeld once told me that her husband (then late) Mr. Ehrenfeld bought the unique Haka flute for the sum of about fifteen then Dutch guilders, something like that in $'s. This because he did not have the twenty guiders the sellers wanted in his pocket. Moreover he found the Haka in an umbrella stand but amazingly in perfect condition. The value of that flute now, one of the two remaining one keyed flutes in between Renaissance and Baroque is difficult to say but it is so unique that any Museum with an interest in musical instruments would love to have it on display.
