Thirty-Two Rose Etudes for Flute
(Based On The Etudes Of Franz Whilhelm Ferling)
John Walker (composer), Franz Ferling (composer), Cyrille Rose (arranger), Amy Porter (editor)
Methods and Studies; Book with CD or DVD
Master flutist Amy Porter has reworked the famous etudes of Cyrille Rose for flute, allowing students of the instrument to reap the rewards of pieces that have benefited clarinetists for generations. As these etudes were written for the range of the clarinet and based on the range of Ferling’s oboe etudes, Porter has raised the octave placement in some exercises to make them more suited for all the octaves of the modern flute. This edition also includes a data CD containing piano accompaniments written and performed by John Walker in both MP3 and printable PDF format. In this form, the Rose etudes will become as essential to flute students as they are to clarinetists, as both practice and recital pieces.
