 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.


 238 Blavet – Adagio from ‘La Lumagne’

Ornamentation is very important in Baroque music. At that time, color trills were already being used to enrich the music. It’s fun to experiment a bit with that concept. You can play this piece with piano or play the bass line on a bass flute.

Versieringen zijn erg belangrijk in barokmuziek. In die tijd werden er al kleurtrillers gebruikt om de muziek te verrijken. Het is leuk om een beetje met dat concept te experimenteren. Je kunt dit stuk met piano spelen of de baslijn op een basfluit spelen.


 219 Montéclair – Badines

During the Baroque period, French musicians loved ornamentations. They would certainly have appreciated this arrangement with bisbigliandi. In fact, there is a chance that they used to use this type of color trills back in the day.

Tijdens de barok hielden Franse musici van versieringen. Ze zouden dit arrangement met bisbigliandi zeker op prijs hebben gesteld. Er is zelfs een kans dat ze vroeger dit soort kleurtrillers gebruikten.


 199 Away in a Manger

Bisbigliandi, or color trills are quite interesting. It is fascinating to play with differences in timbre. In this arrangement, the 2nd and 3rd parts color this piece with bisbigliandi, accompanying the melody and supported by the fourth part, which you can also play on a bass flute.

Bisbigliandi of kleurenthrillers zijn heel interessant. Het is fascinerend om met verschillen in klankkleur te spelen. In dit arrangement kleuren de 2e en 3e partij dit stuk met bisbigliandi. Ze begeleiden de melodie en worden ondersteund door de vierde partij, die je ook op een basfluit kunt spelen.


 182 Brian Boru’s March

This famous traditional can be found in different versions. And now we also have a Flute Colors
version. Practicing trills is useful for improving finger movement. In this arrangement I have added color trills. If you want, you can add even more trills!

Deze beroemde traditional is te vinden in verschillende versies. En nu is er ook een Flute Colors-versie. Het oefenen van trillers is goed om de vingerbeweging te verbeteren. In dit arrangement zijn kleurtrillers toegevoegd. Als je wilt, kun je nog meer trillers toevoegen!


 171 Foster – Beautiful Dreamer

Stephen C. Foster wrote numerous pieces and songs. All in a beautiful, simple style. This song is an example. I added some bisbigliando trills. It’s fun to play with timbre a bit and working with different fingerings gives you more flexibility.


 160 Rameau – Tambourin

Small trills are needed in this piece. In this arrangement, the trills are replaced by bisbigliando trills. Nice colorful trills in one tone. When playing in a flute ensemble, the bass (alto) part must be played and sung to get the characteristic fifths in the bass.


 136 Fun with ‘React’

You can make this warming up exercise as exciting as you like. Choose your own order of letters and make this exercise different every time you play it.


 135 Greensleeves

The very first Flute Colors arrangement with bisbigliando trills and tremolo’s. They are not really difficult but give such a nice effect. True flute colors!
