    The Blackbird, written in 1952, lasts 5 minutes and is one of the most remarkable pieces of the flute repertoire. Based on the study of bird songs, this piece is very technical and challenging, with many details to focus on and would therefore be a fit for advanced students.

    The Blackbird is divided into five sections, not officially written, and mixed tonal and atonal parts. Each of the sections is different to the ones surrounding them, and the piece also contains a few flute solos.
