The enclosed CD features performances of all etudes by Mary Karen Clardy, as well as additional tracks containing second flute parts for play-along. Performance notes, composers’ biographies and a glossary of terms are included, providing helpful historical background to the pieces. An optional second flute part has been composed for each etude, providing opportunities for the teacher or another player to support and reinforce phrasing, rhythm, tone quality, intonation and style.
