FLAUTIST [aka FLUTIST]
[noun]
a musician who plays an instrument in the flute family. The choice of “flautist” (from the Italian flautista, from flauto, and adopted due to eighteenth century Italian influence) versus “flutist” is a source of dispute among players of the instrument. “Flutist” is the earlier term in the English language, dating from at least 1603 (the earliest quote cited by the Oxford English Dictionary), while “flautist” is not recorded before 1860, when it was used by Nathaniel Hawthorne in The Marble Faun.
