flauto (It., ‘flute’, plural flauti). In printed scores since Haydn's time flauto implies the side-blown fl. (flauto traverso). The small version of this is the flauto piccolo, usually called piccolo. In earlier periods flauto sometimes meant the recorder. J. S. Bach wrote flauto piccolo to indicate a small recorder; if he wanted the side-blown flute he wrote flauto traverso. For history of fl., see under flute.
