Sinfonima Klangraum at Musikmesse Plaza
Musikmesse Frankfurt am Main Information now


Although traverse flutes are versatile and wonderful instruments, they tend to be side-lined and are even considered by some people to be rather boring. Discover for yourself the fascination of the traverse flute at the ‘Sinfonima Klangraum’ and admire instruments and accessories made by national and international master craftspeople. Naturally, you can also hear and play the instruments.

Hearing. Discovering. Playing. This is the sound of world-class transverse flutes.

A collaboration by the instrument insurer SINFONIMA and the flautist and OPUS CLASSIC prize-winner Kathrin Christians.

Play the flutes of national and international masters in the Frankfurt Festhalle. Hear and feel the fine musical nuances in the works of outstanding instrument makers. Kathrin Christians is the curator of this unique presentation of world-class exhibits.

  • Adams European Flute Centre
