The Twelve Fantasias (c.1821) feature Mozart's "La ci darem la mano", the Scottish air "Roslin Castle", and Nicholson's own "Bollero".
* *Note: These salon pieces from the pen of Charles Nicholson, England's foremost flute virtuoso of the nineteenth century, are sure to delight performers and listeners alike. Each work includes variations on "National Airs" and operatic melodies, in which Nicholson amazed his audience with formidable technique, rapid articulation, flair for elaborate ornamentation, and expressive devices such as glides (glissandi) and vibration (vibrato). Today's flutist will benefit from the performance practice instructions drawn from Nicholson's Complete Flute Preceptor of 1823, included in these editions.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
