Roz's tip: My student was having a lot of trouble learning these pieces as she couldn't understand the style of them, even when I played the piano with her. So I wrote the duet version* for her and we played it together in the next lesson and 'Eureka!' -  the language and style of the piece became clear to her.

*The included flute duet is the special feature of this edition, allowing the work to be performed by 2 equal flutes with or without a piano. Flute 1 has the complete flute solo, while the accompaniment is compressed into a single line for flute 2.
