Monika Ryškutė

"The most significant feature of AZUMI flutes is the opportunity for the player to reveal his technical abilities due to the excellent mechanics of the instrument and to freely express himself in music due to the wonderful sound of the flute, which not only reveals the nuances of articulation, but also reveals the performer's feelings in music through the variety of colors of the flute's sound."
