Going Forward: 3 Pieces for Flute and Piano
- Staff Pick
“Lovely intermediate pieces.”
This book is lovely and will really appeal to intermediate players. Wandering March, the easiest piece, has a straightforward rhythm enriched with quirky harmonies, Spooky Waltz is all about higher notes and nifty fingers, and Marcia Funebre targets dotted rhythms over a bell-like accompaniment. The piano part is challenging in an approachable way so this would work with two students. They will love them!
From the Publisher
These three pieces, all different in character, are excellent material for teaching and will appeal to students and flute players who are progressing into the intermediate stage. Spooky Waltz is especially designed to help flute students gain confidence in playing above the stave. Marija is a flute teacher in Zagreb, Croatia and wrote these pieces for her own students, joining a list of Croatian composers whose music is gaining popularity with flute players for its Croatian music is becoming increasingly popular with flute players for its combination of lyricism with a brightly rhythmic quality.
In the video, Marija is herself performing the second piece in the book, Spooky Waltz.
