A Practice Book for the Transverse Flute. Almost all exercises are based upon fragments from historical sources and cover all important areas of technique: articulation, finger-technique, intonation, and tone-development. With “Back to Basics” it is possible to practice fundamental tone and technique historically informed. This edition is recommended by Prof. Michael Schneider (“This technique … belongs on the music stand of every baroque flute player …”) as well as Prof. Karl Kaiser (“… a thoroughly convincing system. These historically based daily exercises should be of great use for every baroque flute player.”)
German original edition. English translation: EW1011.
“What we have here is a carefully thought-out collection of useful exercises from flute methods of the eighteenth century, compiled and systematically arranged by Ms. Thomann. This is not a progressive method, although the exercises gradually become more difficult. The most important fundamentals of playing the transverse flute are treated in separate sections, which one can or may want to also work on in a different order or, as needed, individually. Whoever does not want to develop his/her technique with the aid of compositions, but rather of goal-oriented etudes, will find very suitable material here.”
