Editor's Choice

This book sets out the teaching methods developed by Rampal (and Alain Marion) and attempts to explain his philosophies. Each section is illustrated by musical examples and includes performance guides. For example, the section entitled Mostly Scales uses studies by Andersen, Soussmann, Boehm and the Scherzo from Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream. There are sections focusing on all the usual techniques as well as slow movements, gestures, and playing Bach in 3/4 time. There is nothing earth-shatteringly new here but it is interesting to read and uses familiar material in different surroundings. Ms Cohen is passionate about her subject and this is infectious!

My flute teacher had brought this book for me to look at - realised it had lots of great pieces in so ordered it myself as didn't want to be parted from it! It has lots of text in it which I haven't read yet but contains some great stuff in (Handel Bach, Mozart, Koehler and Telemann and others) , studies and some nice duets. Not for the beginner but has a good range of difficulty. Love it! Ordered from Just Flutes, came within a couple of days, no hassle.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
