Particularly outstanding is the way that Collatti tries to vary the main melodic theme within each song when it appears repeatedly across the two flute parts. From a teacher's viewpoint this is doubly useful: the vast amount (and ever-changing use) of syncopated rhythms by Collatti ensures that these luscious duets are a perfect introduction to rhythmic variations. They would equally serve as wonderful sight-reading material, too.
