Continuing in the tradition of previous publications in the Classics series: Classic Solos and Classic Duets, Mary Karen Clardy has selected 24 of the most significant standard études from Carl Joachim Andersen's op. 21, 30, 33, 37 and 41, Antoine Benoit Tranquille Berbiguier's Studies and Ernesto Köhler's Romantic Études op. 66. Performance notes, composers' biographies and a glossary of terms are included providing helpful historical background to the pieces. An optional second flute part has been composed for each étude providing opportunities for the teacher or another player to support and reinforce phrasing, rhythm, tone quality, intonation and style. These parts may be downloaded for free from our website. The second flute parts have been recorded on the CD to provide supportive accompaniments for playing along - an invaluable aid in daily practice.
This is an ideal book for flute students preparing for Grades 7 or 8 . lt is a compendium of studies by Andersen, Kohler and Berbiguier, neatly arranged in key order: C major followed by A minor, G major followed by E minor and so on. The student can link scales and arpeggio practice with sight-reading in that key, and then follow up with detailed technical work on whatever the particular study demands. It is not easy to find interesting material in the more remote keys, and these studies are well chosen. (…) The idea of providing an optional second flute part is excellent, (…) download the second flute part (which is free) and play with your teacher or another student. Music Teacher Magazine 12/2011
