I’m excited to be launching our 3rd The Informed Flutist camp — and as they say, better late than never!
I have chosen a repertoire list that I hope will be both fun and useful! Many of the selections (Salome, Daphnis, Afternoon of a Faun) are especially fun to work on with piano reduction. I’ve also added the crazy “Hairdresser’s Scene” excerpt from Der Rosenkavalier. Never seen it? Well, better start working on it NOW. It’s an excerpt more likely to show on rep lists for Opera Auditions, and it’s really a duet for 2 flutes. We will also be focusing on a few of my favorite orchestra duos.
New this year: Leela will work provide some extra work on Baroque repertoire and traverso, for anyone who requests it during our usual Mock Audition Time.
On “sabbatical” from IF this summer is Sergio (he’ll be in Canada, eh). He’ll join us next year, and in the meantime we want to congratulate him on joining the faculty of the Longy School of Music.
That’s all the NEWS for now. Please think about signing up! Deadline April 17, the day after Easter!
Tell your friends!
