  • 24 Études progressives (24 Progressive Studies) – Taffanel/Gaubert

    “This beautifully crafted edition of Taffanel and Gaubert’s famous 24 Etudes progressives is part of a series titled Essential Exercises for All Instrumentalists…Extremely useful tools are the index of main technical points covered with a corresponding label for each etude as well as specific technical instructions per etude…These are excellent etudes for musicianship and mastery of technical skills. I especially like the etudes that demonstrate the wide variety of articulations possible…This clearly printed, thoughtful edition of the illustrious pedagogues’ classic book of etudes is a definite gem for students of the flute worldwide.”–The Flutist Quarterly

  • 3 Cadenzas for Mozart’s Concerto in G Major – Taffanel/Gaubert

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s (1756-1791) Flute Concerto in G was written by the composer in 1778. The concerto remains widely studied and performed on the flute, making it one of the most important concerti in the instrument’s repertoire. Paul Taffanel and Philippe Gaubert’s composed cadenzas for the work are essential to all performers of the concerto. Concerto in G is in three movements; 1. Allegro maestoso, 2. Adagio ma non troppo, and 3. Rondo: Tempo di Menuetto. The first and last movements are in the tonic key, whilst the second movement is in the subdominant key of D major. All three movements contain a cadenza which initially would have been left for the performer to improvise. However, cadenzas have since been written, including those of Taffanel and Gaubert. Both were prominent flautists of their time and their understanding of the flute concerto repertoire is second to none, making their cadenzas well-informed and essential to performers of the concerto.

    Following on from Volume 1, the six etudes in Volume 2 (1986) further develop the stylistic possibilities that a multiphonic flutist can explore.  These etudes touch on minimal music, quasi-serial music and end with a full blown “electric Blues” in the style of Jimi Hendrix!  Your listeners will be floored!

  • Dick, Robert – Flying Lessons: 6 Contemporary Concert Etudes, Vol. 1

    Flutists spend a lot of time practicing etudes, but rarely perform them because most etudes simply are not good enough as music to play for people. My compact with every flutist willing to do the work to learn Flying Lessons is that you will have music you can play in your concerts – and audiences dig this stuff! You will hear, again and again, I never imagined a flute could sound like this. It’s wonderful!

    These short pieces, composed in 1983, use multiphonics, glissandi, percussive sonorities, singing with playing and other extended techniques in an original, lyric style. Clearly notated with accurate, easily readable fingerings.

    A wonderful opportunity to study and perform the newest techniques in
    multiphonics. The Flutist Quarterly.

  • Dick, Robert – The Other Flute

    Regarded as the definitive reference work for flutists and composers.

  • Dick, Robert – Tone Development Through Extended Techniques

    Daily studies designed to enable the flutist to produce optimum resonance and to develop the embouchure strength and sensitivity to confidently play multiphonics, whisper tones, natural harmonics and other extended timbres while simultaneously developing the beauty, power, color and control of the tone for traditional music. An important feature is the unique presentation of “throat tuning” — a breakthrough technique for tone development.

  • Jeanjean, Paul – Études Modernes Pour Flute [Modern Studies for Flute]

    Modern Studies for the Flute is a set of sixteen studies by Paul Jeanjean (1874-1928). Composed in 1868, and initially composed for clarinet, these studies would fit advanced players. Each one of these Modern Studies is 3 or 4 pages long and extremely technically challenging. They all require strong attention, good endurance and they could be used to prepare the player for combinations of chords and rhythmic figures of contemporary music. Paul Jeanjean (1874-1928) is a French composer known for his clarinet compositions. He also composed ‘Vade-Mecum of the Clarinet Player,’ ‘Arabesques’ and ‘Clair Matin.’

  • Méthode complete de flute (Complete Flute Method) – Taffanel/Gaubert

    Considered as the practical guide for flute, Complete Flute Method was co-written by Paul Taffanel (1844-1908) and Philippe Gaubert (1879-1941). Published in 1923, this method is strongly progressive: helping the beginner from the very start, it should develop and help them to master the necessary theory, technique and tone of this instrument. The 227 pages all contain descriptions and comments written in French, English, German and Spanish, which stand out by their precision and detail. Recognised worldwide thanks to Marcel Moyse, Emmanuel Pahud and Pierre-Yves Arthaud among others, Complete Flute Method demonstrates and confirms the quality and professionalism of these French flautists and their methods. Paul Taffanel (1844-1908) and Philippe Gaubert (1879-1941) are both professional flautists who collaborated on different projects together, including this method and the 17 Grands Exercices Journaliers de Mécanisme.
