Notes for Flutists: A Guide to the Repertoire offers important historical and analytical information about three dozen of the best-known pieces written for the instrument. Its contextual and theoretical insights make it an indispensable resource for professional, amateur, and student flutists. With engaging prose supported by fact-filled analytical charts, the book offers rich biographical information and informative analyses to help flutists gain a more complete understanding of J. S. Bach's Sonata in B minor, Reinecke's Undine Sonata, Faure's Fantaisie, Hindemith's Sonata for Flute and Piano, Copland's Duo for Flute and Piano, and 30 other masterpieces. Offering a faithful and comprehensive resource for understanding the context in which the repertory was composed, Notes for Flutists details in clear, chronological order flute repertoire from Georg Philipp Telemann, Gabriel Faure, Claude Debussy, Luciano Berio to Robert Muczynski and Aaron Copland. Kyle J. Dzapo offers rich biographical information on each composer and highlights history's impact on the creation and performance of notable works for flute. Aimed as a starting point for connecting performance studies with scholarship, Dr. Dzapo's analysis will help flutists gain a more complete picture of a given work. Its contextual and theoretical insights make it essential to musicians preparing and presenting programs, and detailed historical information about the work and composer will encourage and equip readers with the desire and insights to explore other works in a similarly analytical way. Lending insights to both solo flute and chamber pieces, Dzapo presents Notes for Flutists as an accessible music theory and analysis resource, making it indispensible for students and professionals alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS
As a reference work, flutists of all sorts will appreciate Dzapo's volume. How convenient it is to have a book close at hand from which to gain quick background information on specific works or composers. The availability of paperback and e-versions of this book will greatly increase accessibility for students and amateurs, who may want to purchase their own copies rather than relying solely on their local or university libraries ... I suspect performers across the orchestra will be thrilled with the prospect of a book that highlights their favorite literature, and a new resource to be used both as a pedagogical tool and for brushing up on historical study. Certainly flutists-students, teachers, amateurs, and professionals alike-will celebrate having an item on their bookshelves that inspires them to revisit their own musical favorites or to explore classics they have not yet played. * Notes *
