Hello!

I am putting together my programme for my ARSM and just don’t know what to choose!

So far, I’ve chosen Suite Antique (Rutter) which I love. I’ve worked out that I have around 15ish more minutes, if the performance, to fill. But, I can’t decide! The pieces on the syllabus that I like are a bit too long.

Any suggestions? Maybe something that’s not on the official ABRSM list? I would quite like an unaccompanied piece, but I’m not keen on Syrinx (don’t really like it and I feel like everyone chooses it!).

If it’s your style, the Astor Piazzolla Tango-Etudes are fun if you want unaccompanied.

I'm not  a flute expert, but isn't  'Danse de la Chèvre'  by Honegger a suitable solo piece ? I prefer it to Syrinx.................https://www.youtube....h?v=KjmIDtVACX0

Another unaccompanied idea, which my current ARSM student has enjoyed, is to try one or two of the pieces in Aleksey Igudesman's new book "Magical Spells". Engaging and musical, with a nice level of challenge about them

Thank you for all your replies. I will investigate on YouTube to see if any of the suggestions take my fancy!

Thanks again!
