The Warm-up toolbox for traverso is a collection of 24 exercises and studies that aims at developing a specific approach to the characteristic challenges, technique and language of the baroque flute.
More specifically, tone preparation, vocalises,
intervals and patterns, and finger and tongue preparation are addressed in detail through the pieces of this book.
Some of the exercises are just adaptations of existing training material for modern flute, some were originally written, but most are passages from 18th century literature, to make sure that the practice reflects and supports the performance of period music.
The pieces are presented in many different major and minor keys, typically from 3 sharps to 3 flats, to make sure you really appreciate their technical and expressive nuances on the baroque flute.
You can pick the exercises that fits better your daily mood and needs, and make your daily practice really effective.
Transform ordinary daily warm-ups into a journey through baroque history. These exercises will make every practice session flourish.
