"Technical Mastery of the Virtuoso Flutist is one of Moyse's last works. Together with the various study books frequently used by almost all flutists it gives evidence of the uncontested importance of this great flutist and teacher who has had such an influence on whole generations of musicians."
The exercises which compose this master work contain all the possible combinations of three-note figures necessary for the acquisition of an absolute mastery of fingerings, slurs, articulations and simple rhythms. Established on a mathematical basis, it comprehensively incorporates all tonalities and is basically applicable for study by all wind players.
