Legato Espressivo – Daily Sonority Exercises for Flute by Carlo Morena

When discussing flute performance practice, the term “legato espressivo” (“expressive legato”) is used to refer to fluidity of phrasing and naturalness of expression, both fundamental aspects in the search for a good sound. The goal of this method is to offer a daily training plan that will help to improve this aspect, through 10 series of exercises, each aimed at solving a specific technical challenge (speed control, wide leaps, high notes, evenness of sound, slurred scales, etc). Carlo Morena’s work has the advantage of being pleasing and manages to avoid the usual repetitiousness of technical exercises, drawing upon the student’s own musical sense.

Contents:

Group 1 – Nine exercises for improving expressiveness and legato technique

Group 2 – Three exercises for controlling air-speed

Group 3 – Nine exercises for avoiding a pinched sound on large leaps and for developing expressive legato on high notes

Group 4 – Two exercises for developing an even sound and controlling sixth leaps

Group 5 – Six exercises covering the flute’s entire range

Group 6 – Five exercises for intonation and legato playing on fourth and fifth leaps

Group 7 – Eight exercises for playing scales expressively and legato

Group 8 – Four  exercises for wide leaps and sound flexibility

Group 9 – Four exercises for developing an expressive and voice-like legato

Group 10 – Five exercises featuring advanced sound-emission techniques
