Finnish flute composers 

The Finnish Flute Association aims to promote Finnish flute artistry. We will present here some composers with finnish flute repertoire. 



herba70vA Finnish flutist and significant flute pedagogue Herbert Lindholm started his composing career only at the age of 40. Nevertheless, he has been a very prolific composer of flute music. He combines the traditional and modern day styles and aims to create music which is idiomatic for the instrument, and which is comfortably playable for the musician.


Herbert has kindly offered his flute library to the use of the FFA. Members can print out works via finnish member pages. His works can also be purchased from Music Finland's website.
