The Techniques of Flute Playing II: Piccolo, Alto and Bass Flute
Levine, Carin; Mitropoulos-Bott, Christina

Following the great success of The Techniques of Flute Playing I for concert flute, the second volume systematically addresses all aspects of sound production and performance technique for piccolo, alto, and bass flute. Techniques are introduced using instructive examples from the repertoire, which also provide information on special notation; while valuable practice instructions guide the way to their application. Using the supplemented CD, players can compare the resulting sounds to a recording of Carin Levine. The volume presents an invaluable and applicable resource for composers, players, and pedagogues. Text is presented in both English and German.
