Moyse provides the perfect study book for advanced flautists. With directions in French, English, German and Japanese, Ten Studies After Wieniawsky for the Flute cannot be missed.
French flautist, Marcel Moyse (1889-1984) studied with virtuosos Philippe Gaubet, Adolphe Hennebains and Paul Taffanel at the Paris Conservatoire. Moyse went on to become principal Flute of various orchestras and also became known for his trademark tone; a clear, flexible and penetrating tone, controlled by a fast vibrato. As well as performing, Moyse taught the Flute and published a substantial amount of study books for the instrument. Ten Studies, based on studies by Wieniawsky, focuses on advanced elements of phrasing, tempo, breath control, articulation, intervals, ornamentation, fingering and evenness, amongst other aspects. Being a prominent Flute player himself, Moyse's Ten Studies After Wieniawsky is well-informed and essential to aspiring, advanced flautists.
