From the Publisher

This volume from The Flute Collection provides a practical solution to the search for the perfect cadenza. It allows flautists to display their virtuosity using an idea of Luciano Berio. He wrote these cadenzas in 1985 on behalf of the then solo flautist at La Scala, Milan. Emmanuel Pahud published and revised them making them another precious puzzle piece in the boundless flute repertoire.

Our Description

As one might expect , these are the most adventurous, (...) with an extended (two page) cadenza for the first movement which makes use of a chromatic language, including flutter tonguing, tremolos and septuplet rhythms. The cadenzas for the other two movements are shorter and use only traditional techniques, but are no less adventurous. In these cadenzas, Berio has worked with small fragments of Mozart's material and developed and worked with it to make it clearly a part of his own compositional voice (...) These cadenzas are a joy. They are also fun to play."
