The French flautist François Borne came from Toulouse. He is now remembered in particular for his Fantaisies brillantes on Bizet’s Carmen and on Meyerbeer’s L’Africaine, continuing elements of virtuoso flute repertoire. He was responsible for technical modifications to the mechanism of the Böhm flute.
