  • Debussy, Claude – Syrinx (La Flute de Pan)

    Syrinx is undoubtedly among the works that are immediately associated with Debussy. The piece, which was given its first performance under the title La flûte de Pan, was composed in 1913 as incidental music to a dramatic poem by Gabriel Mourey. In the central scene Pan is playing a reed flute, which is actually the nymph Syrinx. Pan is, however, invisible to the other nymphs and to the audience. In order to reflect the staged situation, the dedicatee Louis Fleury used to play the piece behind a screen when he played it in concert. It was only published by Jobert in 1927, following Debussy’s death; its popularity has remained unsurpassed to this day.

  • Dick, Robert – Air is the Heaviest Metal

    The third piece in Robert Dick’s series of solo flute works based on American popular musics. Air Is the Heaviest Metal is Dick’s take on Speed Metal and Metallica. Intense, exciting, rhapsodic and powerful, this challenging work will burn the house down in your concerts! 8-10 minutes.

  • Dick, Robert – Circular Breathing for the Flutist

    Circular breathing allows the performer to sustain tone while inhaling, a tremendously valuable tool. For the first time, a method is available specifically for the flutist, covering developments of the embouchure and breathing co-ordinations needed to master circular breathing. Examples include orchestral passages, selections of solo literature from Bach to Varèse and circular breathing while articulating and playing multiphonics or whispertones.

  • Dick, Robert – [email protected] (including score & CD)

    [email protected] (2003) is a poem dramatically presented through music, speech and sound. It is as much performance art as it is a musical work.

Commissioned by the National Flute Association for the 2003 Young Artist competition, the piece is accompanied by pre-recorded sound on CD. [email protected] is in turn exciting, lyrical, tender, commanding … and funny! In recital, this piece really allows you to show who YOU are, not only as a flutist, but as a person! 9 minutes.

  • Dick, Robert – Fish Are Jumping (for Flute Alone)

  • Dick, Robert – Flying Lessons: 6 Contemporary Concert Etudes Vol. 2

    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 – 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.
