[DVD] 30 Caprices for Flute (Amy Porter)
I am delighted to be your teacher on this DVD and I hope that you will find a few suggestions that will be beneficial to your performance. Whether in a lesson or on the concert stage, these short caprices deserve all the energy you can bring to them. They allow us to speak in a musical language that is rare in solo flute literature. According to Mr. Karg-Elert, these caprices, "form a connective link between the existing educational literature and the unusually complicated parts of modern orchestral works by Richard Strauss, Mahler, Bruckner, Reger, Pfitzner, Schillings, Schonberg, Komgold, Schrecker, Scriabin, Stravinsky and the most modern virtuosi soli."
