Comments

These works for the advanced solo flutist, collected together by James J. Pellerite, were originally presented in two volumes and published by JP Zālo in 1979. They are now presented together in this 2022, single volume edition of The Contemporary Solo Flute.

These eleven pieces, composed in a relatively narrow band of time (1973-1985), nonetheless demonstrate a wide range of 20th Century flute and compositional techniques.

Extended techniques are present (percussive effects, multiphonics, microintervals, and similar), but are usually used for timbral or rhythmic enhancement rather than as motive ideas. The majority of the works adhere to idiomatic fingering and embouchure technique, and all of the works are attractively, musically suited for the flute and its musical tendencies.
