  • Rippert established himself as a maker in Paris of the finest recorders, flutes and oboes. In 1715 he was aging but still working hard, and it seems that his instruments were more in demand than those of the famous Hotteterre. That same year the musical amateur Uffenbach from Frankfurt visited Rippert at the rue Colombiere and ordered a "traverse" flute for his cousin, which, when it was received, resulted in two more orders. Uffenbach also visited Hotteterre and was delighted to hear this master perform on a musette, but did not purchase any of Hotteterre's available flutes, only a copy of the famous Hotteterre method. Rippert made several recorders at a pitch close to A=440 (chorton or Venetian pitch). Von Huene's copy of the Rippert alto gives the serious recorder player an opportunity to play at modern pitch on an instrument that sounds and responds like an original.
