A Flute Colors variation on the very famous piece by Edvard Grieg. If you don’t have an alto and bass flute you can also play the version with flute and piano. Try to make the sound of the pizzicato very ‘dry’ and very precise together and you will sound like a string quartet playing pizzicato.
Leise rieselt der Schnee (the snow trickles softly). A nice melody to practise whistle tones. You can also play this arrangement as a trio.
