Il Flauto Dolce, for Flute & Piano

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

It's a nice piece. There is a nice melody and some beautiful harmonic moments.

About the flute part:

1. It's very long and sustained on the high notes. A flute player would have trouble breathing.

2. There isn't much variety but that can be a good thing, depending on your personal style. However, a real player might get bored.

3. To be really picky, you have a lot of reliance on high C# and top F#. I don't know if you know, but hitting and sustaining these notes is a horrible task on the modern flute, although professionals can do it more easily.

Thanks for sharing your lovely piece of flute music!

Thanks for the appreciation and for the suggestions.

Effectively, when composing for an instrument, I should take care of its behaviours, and how it has to be played. But I haven't yet such an aknowledgement about that.

I really appreciated your advices.

Thanks again.
