This book has been created to assist student and professional flutists alike in their journey towards becoming masters on their instruments while truly enjoying the process. Therefore, I have carefully selected, amongst the thousands of etudes available to us, nineteen gems of substantial musical merit which lend themselves to expressive interpretation. It is also my hope that these can be studied and performed as concert pieces, as I feel that each is deserving. "Expressive Etudes for the Flute and its companion recording should be found in every flutist's library. Laura Barron's excellent performance suggestions and virtuosic interpretations of 19 varied, musically challenging etudes will offer inspiration to players of all ages and levels. She has done the flute community a great service by demonstrating so strongly the value of the etude in our repertoire." Leone Buyse, Professor, Rice University, former principal flute of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
