Twenty-four Etudes, Op15 by Joachim Andersen
Edited and with Practiving Suggestions by Louis Moyse
Preface by Marcel Moyse
Flute Method Book
It is very important to study these etudes employing a free interpretation of rhythms and articulation. By varying the rhythms one learns to know the different aspects of each etude. Changing the articulation frequently means to bring out the beauties of the melodic line in a most appealing manner. This not only increases the possibilities of mastering the difficulties inherent in each etude, it also is an ideal way to discover and understand the reason which lead to the composition of each etude.
This kind study makes you reflect, helps you to understand and to progressively enfold the musical wealth that each etude contains. All this is important for any etude, but it is particularly important for the etudes of Joachim Andersen, for they are so beautiful and of such high musical quality.
