Encore Pieces for Flute and PianoIncludes CD
Edited by Franco Cesarini
From the Publisher
It is often the case that at the end of a concert a soloist is requested to perform an additional item not listed in the programme, in other words an encore. In general the piece that is chosen is short and emphasises the expressive qualities of theinstrument as well as the musical ability of the soloist. In this collection you will find a series of works that are suitable as encore pieces due to their duration and technical content. On the CD which accompanies this book you will find acomplete recording of each piece which you can use as a guide before performing the solo part with the piano accompaniment.
