Rue Traversière - The Flute Way Book 2 (1, 2 and 3 flutes)
From the Publisher
Sophie Dufeutrelle, teacher at the National School of Music in Villeubanne France), reconnects here with the success of her previous book for beginners, Rue Traversiere 1 (The Flute Way 1). The second volume in this series takes a look at double and triple tonguing a technique fundimental to the airy pearled and nimble sounds of the flute.
The book offers a progressive development of this skill through short, focussed studies and numerous excerpts from the Baroque repertoire. Thanks to works by Boismortier, Handel, Quantz, Telemann and many more, arranged or composed for two - sometimes three - flutes, the mastering of tonguing technique flourishes in the sheer delight of making music together!
This book is for all intermediate-level flautists who are learning or perfecting double and triple tonguing. It is composed of short studies that are easy, fun, gradual and targeted, along with allegro excerpts from the Baroque repertoire.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
