Boehm 24 Capriccios for Solo Flute-Chester (Boehm 24 Caprice-Etudes Opus 26-Solo Flute-Chester-Edited by Trevor Wye). Suitable for advanced players, these 24 studies cover technical aspects of flute playing including articulation, tone, flexibility of tone and agility of fingers etc. Theobald Boehm (1794-1881) was a Bavarian flautist, composer, and Goldsmith. He travelled throughout Europe performing in concert between 1821-1831 performing his compositions and on flutes made in his own workshop. Boehm experimented with various new concepts in flute mechanics and developed/revised the cylindrical Boehm flute over many years. His flute design became the standard form of the modern flute to which French and American workshops later adopted.
British flautist, Trevor Wye (Born 1935-) is a professional flautist, teacher, and author and editor of several technical and repertoire books for the flute. In particular, his popular series of ‘Practice Books for Flute’ have been translated into eleven other languages. He is also Founder of the British Flute Society and founded the International Summer School for flute.
He began learning the flute aged 15 and studied privately with renowned flautists, Geoffrey Gilbert and Marcel Moyse. Trevor freelanced as a chamber and orchestral player on the London scene for many years and has many solo recordings to his name. Wye was also a Professor at the Guildhall School of Music, London and for 21 years at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. He continues to travel throughout the world giving masterclasses in Europe, the USA and Japan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrMo_5xicsE
