 284 Bartók – Trei crai de la Râsârit

Bartók wrote a whole series of Romanian Christmas Carols. Two of those pieces are already in the Flute Colors collection. Now, a third one is being added. Once again, it’s for flute choir. The added technique is pizzicato. It’s a beautiful challenge to get all the parts in sync with the pizzicato notes.

Bartòk schreef een hele serie met Roemeense Kerst Carols. Twee van die stukken zitten al in de Flute Colors collectie. Nu komt er een derde bij. Ook deze keer weer voor flute choir. De techniek toegevoegd is pizzicato. Een mooie uitdaging om de pizzicato noten met alle partijen gelijk te krijgen.


 276 Vivaldi – Adagio Molto from ‘Autumn’

The atmosphere of this slow movement of Vivaldi’s Autumn is so beautiful and peaceful. When I was looking for a technique that wouldn’t harm this atmosphere, there was only one option: wind tones. The chords of the harpsichord are played pizzicato by the first flute. This piece is a good breath control exercise.

De sfeer van dit langzame deel van Vivaldi’s Autumn is zo mooi en vredig. Toen ik op zoek was naar een techniek die deze sfeer niet zou schaden, was er maar één optie: windtonen. De akkoorden van het klavecimbel worden pizzicato gespeeld door de eerste fluit. Dit stuk is perfect om een goede controle over de ademhaling te trainen.


 256 Vivaldi – Largo from ‘Winter’

This is such a beautiful tune and it’s perfect to use as a warm up exercise. But not in this case. The bibligliando trills copy the effect of a trill. The pizzicato imitates the pizzicato playing on the violin. And the wind sounds make everything melt together.

Deze mooie melodie is perfect om te gebruiken als warming-upoefening. Maar niet in dit geval. De bibligliando trillers kopiëren het effect van een triller. De pizzicato imiteert het pizzicatospel op de viool. En door de wind sounds smelt alles samen.


 240 Bartók – Brâul

This is a second Flute Colors arrangement of a piece from Bartók’s Romanian Christmas Carols. You can have fun with the time signature changes and pizzicato has been added to make some notes more percussive. Try to sound them all at once.

Dit is een tweede Flute Colors-arrangement van een stuk uit Bartóks Romanian Christmas Carols. Laat je verrassen door de maatsoortwisselingen. Pizzicato is toegevoegd om sommige noten percussiever te maken. Probeer ze allemaal tegelijk te laten klinken.


 205 Glinka – Russian Polka

Glinka was one of the first composers to use Russian themes in his operas. He inspired many Russian composers. This simple melody is perfect for adding and practicing jetwhistles. Practicing jetwhistles can help you get more support and is therefore ultimately good for the sound.

Glinka was een van de eerste componisten die Russische thema’s in zijn opera’s gebruikte. Hij inspireerde vele Russische componisten. Deze eenvoudige melodie is perfect om jetwhistles toe te
voegen en te oefenen. Het beoefenen van jetwhistles kan je helpen om meer steun te krijgen en is daarom uiteindelijk goed voor het geluid.


 202 Bartók – Noi umblăm da corindare

‘We walk around singing’ is the title of this short piece. Bartok arranged two series of short Romanian Christmas carols. This is number 8 from the first series. It’s nice to have a different kind of Christmas song. The added pizzicato and tongue stops make the music even more rhythmic.

‘We lopen zingend rond’ is de titel van dit korte stuk. Bartok arrangeerde twee series korte Roemeense kerstliederen. Dit is nummer 8 uit de eerste serie. Het is leuk om een ander soort kerstlied te hebben. De toegevoegde pizzicato en tongue stops maken de muziek nog ritmischer.


 165 Mozart – German Dance No. 3 KV 605

The trio of this German dance is also called ‘The sleigh ride’. Imagine you are skating on the ice. Snow all around you. Since it is not really possible to imitate bells on the flute, I used wind sounds and flutter tongue to make the trio of this dance extra special.


 152 Fauré – Pavane, Op. 50

In the original piece the beautiful melody is accompanied by the pizzicato playing of the strings. In this arrangement I tried to copy the pizzicato feel with pizzicato on the flute. The alto flute part and the bass flute part are the same. If necessary one can be left out.


 143 Vivaldi – Adagio from Concerto RV 235

Vivaldi wrote a lot of beautiful music. A while ago I came across this piece and decided to arrange it one day. I tried to capture the soft and fragile accompaniment with wind sounds. The solo flute has many possibilities to flourish.


 132 Gymnopédie No. 1

This beautiful piece by Erik Satie inspired me to write this arrangement. The piece is pieceful and quiet so I decided to use whistle tones. The wind sounds should be played very softly.
