“A wonderful book!”
Six Pastiches is a wonderful book! Clever, amusing and with unexpected twists, the movements are all caricatures of themselves. Comic Song is in a minor key, the Hornpipe has the famous tune altered and the Romantic Song is very sad indeed! The easier Waltz and Menuet would be a good starting point with Music Hall and with its frequent changes of key and tricky notes possbly the most challenging to perform. Over the course of a couple of years this book could very well plug that post exam void and so is a very reliable purchase. The cover is great too!
Pan - Journal of the British Flute Society
My good friend Simon Hunt—we shared a French government scholarship with Caratgé in 1961—edited and published over 100 works for flute. Daughter of flautist Harold Clarke, Cecilia has written a marvellous variety of works, of which Pastiches has inspired countless beginners. Indeed, her entire repertoire is so valuable for teaching and playing.
Clever, amusing pieces with unexpected twists.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
