3. Queen of the Night's aria (Mozart)
Although this one wasn’t originally written for flute, we think you will certainly enjoy playing it. Within one of Mozart’s most famous opera, The Magic Flute, the Queen of the Night is feeling threatened in her power and position and expresses it by singing this memorable, fast paced and menacingly grandiose aria. No need for you to feel rage, fury or revengeful to perform this one - you can just enjoy playing this epic aria and impress your friends… Preview on Metronaut
4. Fantaisie for flute (Gaubert)
After a prominent career as a flutist of the Paris Opera, Gaubert was appointed as professor of Flute at the Paris Conservatoire, as well as principal conductor of leading orchestras. It was during this time that Gaubert composed his Fantasy for Flute, which remains to this day his most memorable piece. Preview on Metronaut
5. Mozart's Andante in C for Flute and Orchestra
It seems that this piece of music was composed by Mozart to replace the second movement of his first flute concerto, commissioned by Ferdinand De Jean who disliked it. Imagine you ask Mozart to start over again...maybe because you're not able to play it. No problem here for you, we have both of these works in our app, so you can choose the one you want!
