Considering doing Grade 8 Flute in somewhat over a year's time (this session 2011 or the one after) so I've been looking the syllabus, listening on You Tube and where full pieces aren't available to snippets on Amazon/the ABRSM site. Not so much planning my exam pieces, but discovering all sorts of things I want to play.
All I know is I will probably do either the Mozart or the Quantz from A, and from the other two, I've eliminated the two Bachs and Bullard from list C and am very keen to acquire (and eventually learn to play) pretty well every thing else. I'm currently learning the Poulenc because it's unfinished business from 11 years ago and it has some useful technique bits I need to work on (aka double tonguing) but I doubt I'll play it for the exam. I also got Sunstreams and the Rutter Suite Antique for my birthday last week, and have the Mouquet on a CD. My teacher may well have some as well she could lend me, so I have a decent choice of B list pieces. I don't own any interesting List C pieces, but would definitely like to acquire the Muczynski, Rozsa, Tomasi and Wellesz, and it wouldn't cost that much - only about £30.
My finger keeps hovering above the "add to basket" button on Just Flutes for all of them, resisted (just) up to now, but I'm sure it will slip at some point.
