Solitudes for Flute is a set of four etudes. In keeping with the tradition of the genre, each etude explores a different performance technique.
1. Flowing freely– Smooth legato playing and flexible embouchure development.
2. Fleeting, accurate -Staccato study.
3. Moderate, expressive– Clarity of tone and expressiveness.
4. Quick, sprightly– Fluid, concise fingering.
These etudes were written at a time of extreme isolation, when many performing artists were cut off from their audiences (not to mention their main source of revenue.)
Be that as it may, these pieces should now be a kind of celebration as audiences are now returning to the concert and recital halls!
