Gary Schocker - Flute Pieces with Piano (Flute Play-Along Book/CD Pack)
This collection of modern-day classics hails from the pen of America's most popular flute composer, Gary Schocker. Each of these works is written for solo flute with piano accompaniment and occupies a range of difficulty levels. Performed by Mr. Schocker himself accompanied by virtuoso pianist Hugh Sung, each piece invites careful examination for valuable lessons in interpretation, performance style, and intonation. Then you take center stage and play the solo part with Mr. Sung! This album also includes slow-tempo accompaniments of selected up-tempo pieces for learning purposes; and background and performance suggestions on each work by the composer. This edition includes three compact discs containing the complete performance of each work in digital stereo, followed by a second digital stereo version minus the soloist; plus a special slow-tempo version of selected accompaniments for practice purpose. Includes a high-quality, printed edition of the solo part.
