Four Impromptus for Solo Flute


From the Publisher

Hermann Schroeder (1904-1984) composed many instrumental works for his colleagues during his teaching career as a professor of music theory at the Cologne Musikhochschule, including the 4 Impromptus for flute solo (1975). 

The Imprompus are very well suited as an introduction to the free-tonal style of the moderate 20th century modernism, for example in preparation for the music of Hindemith, Genzmer, Jolivet or Roussel. The pieces deal with musical themes such as cantable play, free design without timing scheme, differentiated rhythm, extended tonality, large interval jumps, fluency and much more. The musically appealing miniatures have different characters and tempi and are also suitable as recital pieces.
