The Flute Series published by Broekmans & Van Poppel of Amsterdam presents a familiar and less familiar flute repertoire, edited by prominent musicians and musicologists such as Frans Vester, Nikolaus Delius, Peter van Munster, Jane Bowers, Trevor Wye, William Bennett and Rien de Reede.
The utmost care has been devoted to edition technique, the prime consideration being respect for the original musical text. Nearly all the editions are accompanied by a foreword with the composer’s biographical data and information about the work itself.
Composers such as Louis Andriessen, Joep Straesser and Jean Lambrechts have
added to the repertoire with new compositions, and Pip van Steen, Ruud Bos and Jelle Hogenhuis have made a stimulating contribution to flute tuition for young players with the ‘Graffiti Series’. A number of new books of studies aim at greater variety in the literature of flute exercises. Works by Drouet and Reichert are finally
available again, and Adriaan Bonsel and Geert van Keulen were invited to add to
the most recent etude literature.
