“A lovely book.”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

Paula Robison is one of America's most renowned flute players and here she has gathered together an eclectic mix of repertoire to showcase her country's rich vein of different musical styles. Eye-catching are the arrangements of the three Gershwin piano preludes, together with the spirituals Steal Away and Deep River. Dizzy Fingers is a great virtuoso workout, the St Louis Blues is beautifully set and the inclusion of the Largo from Dvorak's New World Symphony, also known as a spiritual in the US, is the surprise bonus. This is a lovely book which delivers enough originality to find a place in every flute-players library.

From the Publisher

Paula Robison has selected and arranged highlights of Blues, Ragtime, Spirituals, and all three Gershwin preludes in this remarkable collection for flute and piano. George Gershwin described his own music as: “a sort of musical kaleidoscope of America, of our vast melting pot, of our unduplicated national pep, of our blues, our metropolitan madness.” A Touch of Blue celebrates this lively image.
