Principal flute - Kendlinger's K&K Philharmoniker
" I was really impressed when I found such small but very useful thing like lefreQue. This innovation has helped me a lot with overtones, sound production and response of different notes. All together my lefreQue helps me to concentrate on the flow of the piece much better- especially in large concert halls - because I don’t worry anymore about how some notes will sound at the end of the hall and feel more free to perform at my best. I really love it and appreciate this opportunity !"
