Classical lit - The top 5

Discussion in 'Flutes' started by eddierich, Jan 17, 2008.

  1. Before I came to China, I was taking flute lessons for a few months. In that time, I worked on Taffenel-Gaubert, Moyse De La Sonorite, and a couple of √Čtude books. I didn't get to work on any literature and I'd like to any flautists to comment on the top 5 pieces in the repertoire. By top 5, I mean the 5 pieces every flautist knows. Feel free to list more or less.

    I'm not a flautist and I don't try to play one on TV, but I've played a few transpositions on sax and/or clarinet. I seem to remember heavy Mozart works, such as Concerto in D. And "The Magic Flute".

    However, your mileage may vary. I'm just wanting someone to send me an MP3 of Shickele's "Spring Serenade".
