Gariboldi First Exercises for Flute Op 89-Schott
Gariboldi First Exercises for Flute Op 89-Schott (30 Selected Studies)
Starting with easy melodic tonal studies, the ‘First Exercises’ gradually expand their range of tones, thus increasing the technical demands. Melodic and harmonic progression, dynamics, articulation and dexterity are developed in short, exercises arranged in varying ways, starting from the basics.
The song-like, easily comprehensible melody in connection with elementary motivic work (repetitions of motifs, sequences and variations) trains the inner tonal image which is imperative for the beginner in particular. When a sense of melodic progression and phrasing is developed on this basis, the increasing technical elements added later are incorporated both unobtrusively and organically.
This new volume in the well-known Schott series ‘Essential Exercises’ is complemented by teaching tips and an index of technical and musical topics.
Italian flautist and composer, Giuseppe Gariboldi (1833-1905) wrote an array of works for flute as well as numerous songs and operettas. To date, his Vingt Petites Études, Etudes Mignonnes op. 131, 20 Petites Etudes op. 132, Exercices journaliers op. 89 and 15 Etudes Modernes et Progressives have remained a popular choice for students and professionals alike.
In 1856, he moved to Paris, working as a flautist and composer. From 1859 to 1861, he gave concerts in Belgium, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Austria. From 1871 to 1895, he taught flute and composition at the Lycée Jacques-Decour in Paris.
