Jeanne Baxtresser has chosen the most-requested audition pieces and many of the most beautiful duets in the orchestral repertoire for Great Flute Duos. All flute parts are printed exactly as they appear in the most often used editions, retaining the original page breaks and turns to replicate the audition experience. Each excerpt is presented along with Ms. Baxtresser’s commentary and advice on preparation and performance.
Renée Siebert, Second Flute, New York Philharmonic, lends her wisdom and experience to the second flute parts, published in a separate pull-out book. A second pull-out from the volume includes rarely reprinted alto flute parts with advice on performance by David Cramer, Associate Principal Flute, Philadelphia Orchestra.
A virtual audition manual for aspiring orchestral flutists, special focus is given to the qualities of musical leadership needed in a principal flutist, the complex challenges of a second flute position and valuable suggestions for the performance of the major alto flute solos.
