The magic of the Laurent Crystal Flute is explored through historical performance and discussion. The Laurent flute, 1807 to 1848, was the indulgence of American and European aristocracy, and was called, "Perfection in Flute Making." Hear Grammy-winning flutist Richard Graef as he brings the glass flute to life, and peer inside these crystal beauties with Murray Loew, professor of biomedical engineering at GWU, Carol Lynn Ward-Bamford, curator of the flute collection at the Library of Congress, and Lynn Brostoff, senior research chemist at the Library of Congress.
