Yeah, that's way old. I ended up not learning the rest of that piece until this semester. I put it away and didn't work on it forever. But when I learned it, it only took me 45 minutes to get the whole thing in my fingers.

My current repertoire: Mozart Concerto in D Major, Jolivet's Chant de Linos (both are for a masterclass workshop with Christina Jennings, Leone Buyse and Jean Ferrandis that I'm doing next week).

I will soon be working up a lot of solo flute pieces and will go 'on tour' to a bunch of retirement homes. I get performance experience and exposure that way. I'm also going to be working up the Ibert Concerto again this summer.

How is that going for you now? Have you started yet?

Well it's summer so I've go nothing in my hands really...except for:

Sonata in E Major by Bach
Cantabile et Presto by Enesco, not too hard of a piece and learning on my own, b/c I feel like it, haha.

And I finished Ballade by Perilhou, Fantasie by Faure (for competition, lovely piece but it has its tricks...ugh), and Bach sonata in e minor.

I think I will be starting Concertino by Chaminade very soon. Hopefully Mozart Concerto in G Major or D major. I like the D major better, though. I've got a whole list of pieces I want to start like: Gaubert's Nocturne et Allegro Scherzando, Taffanel's Andante Pastoral et Scherzettino (sp?), and Reinecke's Sonata "Undine"

I'm working on the Telemann Fantasies. They are so much fun! I am also working on several Bach Sonatas. I prefer Baroque to anything else, but I'm also playing around with Syrinx. There are few contemporary pieces that I like, but that one is haunting.

I'm new here so hi eveyone! :D

I'm learning Mozart's Andante in C and Ian Clake's Sunstreams for a flute course i'm going on in August. So excited!!! :D
I'm also doing the third movement of Mozart's concerto in G major (defintely recomend it remnantpark and also the D major - i loved the second movement so much it ended up being my GCSE perfomance piece!), Danzi; concerto in D minor, Stamiz; Allegro and loads of other things too! I really like a piece called Summer was in August and Mozart's Rondo in D major that i want to learn next.

I literally started learning Concertino by Charminade yesterday!! It's so much fun to play! :D
