Exercises Journaliers pour la Flute Traversiere by Henri AltesRevised by Mary Karen ClaryFlute Method BookThe brilliance of Altes' Daily Studies lies in the variety and construction of the technical patterns included. Systemic, daily practice will benefit every flutist. The 28 exercises (compared to 17 found in Taffanel-Gaubert or 7 in Reichert), challenge the flutist with chromatics, non-traditional scles such as pentatonic, whole tone and oriental, interval studies on fourths, fifths, sixths and octaves, and extensive arpeggio studies, including diminished and augmented triads, seventh and thirteenth chords, and superimposed fourths.
