Over the last several years, many flutist colleagues have mentioned to me the real need for teaching pieces containing extended techniques. The Caprice Project is my answer to that need.
Inspired by Sigfrid Karg-Elert’s (in)famous 30 Caprices for flute, his Gradus ad Parnassum of flute technique, the Caprice Project will unfold in three volumes. Volume 1 contains ten caprices, each 1-2 minutes, meant for beginning flute players. Volume 2 will contain ten additional caprices, each 1.5-2.5 minutes, meant for intermediate players. Volume 3 will contain ten final caprices, meant for advanced players. The first nine of these will be 2.5-3.5 minutes, while the final piece will function as a longer capstone piece (approximately 5 minutes), the same function filled by Karg-Elert’s 30th caprice, Chaconne.
Each caprice except the capstone will contain an accompanimental flute part for teachers to use in lessons. Caprices will be written at the rate of one per month, starting in November 2020 for Volume 1. Composition for Volume 2 is estimated to begin in November 2021. When each volume is finished, it will be published in full.
If you agree that we need more teaching literature that highlights extended techniques, especially at the beginner and intermediate levels, this project is for you.
