  • August 09, 2014 The Division Flute

    This edition of "The Division Flute" only includes 3 works rather than the whole collection which is not indicated anywhere on the cover. Also the titles of 2 of the works "A division to a Ground" and "Pauls Steeple" are on the wrong piece! Do not waste your money on...

  • April 27, 2011 Deceptive title

    The Division Flute was published originally by Walsh in 1706, and contained 12 pieces which were examples of the art of "divisions," or increasingly complex variations on a simple theme. They were performed above a "ground" which was a repetitive phrase in the bass line that gave harmonic structure and...

    unity to the piece. This edition only present 3 of the 12 pieces, and is quite incomplete because of it. When I saw the title "The Division Flute" I expected the complete set of divisions, and there is no indication in the description, or even in the edition itself that 9 of the pieces are ignored. For someone looking for the actual music that goes with the title, this edition is not only very disappointing, but also expensive for what you actually get -- which is a pretty package that contains very little.

    Difficulty Level:
  • March 16, 2008 Good exercise, maybe not so good for performance

    This looks like an excellent exercise in ornamentation and learning how to develop variations in play for lead instruments, bass players, and accompanists. It includes a full score, as well as individual part-sheets for alto recorder and string bass. Each of the three pieces starts with a simple exposition...

    of intermediate level in all three parts, and progresses to ever more florid variations. The virtuosity needed to play the increasingly complex variations might be sufficient to merit any one of these pieces to be included in a performance, but the harmony remains basically the same thorughout, so it might get a little dull for a sophisticated audience.
