Looks to me like what many of us would call an "alto" flute, the one pitched in G. This specimen does have a curved head, like a C bass flute does.

I've heard the G instrument sometimes called a "bass" flute; personally I think it makes sense to reserve that term for the lower C instrument.

Just to clarify.

Talented performers...

Thanks for the link (I wouldn't normally have a taste for this music - but Lori Bell keeps the piece from becoming too saccharine)!
