With so many young flautists in the musical world today it is only natural to pair them up and give them some wonderful duets to play. It's amazing what "big" music, these two small instruments can cope with; indeed, in the eighteenth century the flute duet was almost the gramophone record of the time as countless operatic arias were brought to the public in arrangements for this pairing.

This book draws on some of those miniaturizations, from Mozart's and Weber's operas, coupled with earlier music from Telemann and Boismortier and rounded off with more modern pieces from Richard Rodney Bennett and a (specially written) piece by Holzeis-Augustin which introduces some contemporary music techniques. All these duets are great fun and well within the reach of intermediate players.
