Amazing Solos for Flute and Keyboard, selected and arranged by Howard Harrison

The music in this book is appealing, sometimes truely great music which just happens to be simple. None of the pieces is merely 'educational'-- almost all of them had successful lives of their own before they found their way here-- and they have all been chosen for their individual, purely musical strengths.  However, the book is more than just a collection of performable pieces; the pieces in it are roughly graded and very varied in their demands, so that any player who works through them will have the chance to consolidate and polish their technique.  They are also more than usually varied in style, so I hope they will give some unexpected pleasures and signpost some interesting and enjoyable pathways that might otherwise have remained unexplored.
