‘Because they sound so lovely'
Maaike de Vlas, technical researcher at PPO Randwijk, plays the flute every day after work. To keep her hand in. But above all for the love of music and the sound of the flute in particular. Her favourite is the silver flute, but her valuable collection includes piccolos, a range of recorders and even an Irish tin whistle. And a bassoon. OK, that's not strictly speaking a flute. But it is beautiful.
