All passages (excerpt  for the Mozart concerto) can be found in Theodore Presser Orchestral Excerpts for Flute, Theodore  Presser Great Flute Duos from the Orchestral Repertoire, and Orchestral Techniques for Flute andPiccolo: An Audition Guide by Walfrid Kujala, Progress Press

Suggestion: photocopy each of these passages from your excerpt book to make your own  binder  for study (3 ring or spiral bound) The flute I excerpts will comprise our Mock Audition list for Monday, June 24. The duos will be covered in an ensemble session, but we will be referring to all this repertoire in  daily group warm-ups and practice method sessions. If possible, memorize at least the start of each passage so that you don’t need to shuffle through your booklet each time we use a measure or two in a warm-up drill        –Aralee
