Family (no initial)
mid 17c - mid 18c
French family of woodwind instrument makers, instrumentalists and composers who are sometimes credited with many important changes that took place in the construction of woodwind instruments during the mid- to late-17th century, amongst them the development of the three-jointed recorder from that in one piece. Instruments stamped Hotteterre are difficult to attribute to particular members of the family.
