This attractive collection of 11 major works for the solo Flute is designed to showcase the wide range of capabilities of the Flute and the flautist. The expressive and challenging pieces were all originally written by great composers, with the solo Flute in mind (not transcribed from other instrumentations), making the bond between instrument, musician and music more organic.
The careful selection marks the peak of Flute solo music in the Baroque and early Classical era with sonatas and fantasies from J.S. Bach, Telemann and C.P.E. Bach, whose Sonata in A minor is regarded to be the last significant piece for solo Flute for the next 150 years – until Debussy’s Syrinx in 1913, which is also included in this selection. Edited by the professional flautist and Flute instructor Trevor Wye, Music For Solo Flute provides all the staple pieces of an advanced player’s solo repertoire.
