24 Caprice Etudes for Flute, Op. 26
Edited and Performed by Sir James Galway
Published by Southern Music
In writing these short pieces, Boehm gave us 24 miniature gems incorporating the difficulties we face daily while playing the flute. Many of the etudes require work with the low octave and will demand the revision of the position for the right hand. They are of course difficult to play, but using the method of practice I have outlined, you will learn to play in all the major and minor keys with an unimaginable fluency. Boehm gave precise instructions in some of the studies and very little in others. I have inserted some slurs and dynamics to help you play them.
