Abstract/Description: This survey of orchestral excerpt books is a resource for flutists auditioning, studying, or teaching orchestral excerpts. An orchestral excerpt is a short, difficult passage or solo from an individual part of a symphonic work. There are many resources but few explanations of where to locate excerpts for flutists. Because the audition process is not yet uniform, it is challenging for flutists to find the necessary music. Included are books that the author has come across through experiences teaching and taking auditions. They are: the Paul Taffanel and Philippe Gaubert Méthod Complète de Flûte, the Karlheinz Zöller Moderne Orchesterstudien für Flöte Volumes 1 and 2, the Trevor Wye A Piccolo Practice Book and The Orchestral Practice Books Volumes 1 and 2, the Jeanne Baxtresser Orchestral Excerpts for Flute and Great Flute Duos from the Orchestral Repertoire, the Walfrid Kujala Complete Original Flute Parts- The Flute Audition Book and Orchestral Techniques for Flute and Piccolo, the Michael Parloff Opera Excerpts for Flute, the Jack Wellbaum Orchestral Excerpts for Piccolo, the John Wion Opera Excerpts for Flute Volumes 1 through 9, the John Wummer Orchestral Studies Volumes 1 through 9, the Orchestra Musician's CD-ROM Library Volumes 1 through 12, The Modern Flutist, and the Little Piper. It is hoped that this treatie will provide a useful tool for all flutists to efficiently locate any passage they need.
