Les plus belles etudes (The Most Beautiful Etudes) presented by Georges Lambert
These etudes are among the most beautiful written for flute in the 19th century. They complete the two albums published by the same editor and present a comprehensive range of the instrument’s playing possibilities.
It is wise to always remember that the flute should never be dominated or “tamed”. It is the body that must be left free to vibrate. The music can then be “incarnated”.
Note: It appears that the editor of this collection has incorrectly attributed at least 2 of the etudes in this collection, Etude #5 is actually by Joachim Anderson – #4 from his Op63; Etude #8 is actually by Ernesto Koehler – #3 La Railleuse from his Op66.
These 24 progressive etudes for the flute include:
Ernesto Koehler – Etude 5-17-19
Heinrich Soussmann – Etude n°1 – 3
Johannes Donjon – Etude n°16
Luigi Hugues – Etude n°2 et n°6
Anton Bernhard Furstenu – Etude n°4
Henri Altes – Etude n°7
Theobald Boehm – Etude n°8-11-21-22
Joachim Andersen – Etudes n°9-10-12-13-14-15-18-20-23-24
