(Schott). 71 traditional tunes complete with a companion CD which demonstrates stylistic ornaments. Intermediate Level. "While there are very nice collections of Irish tunes available for flute, this is the most complete and intelligently organized collection I've yet seen...Patrick Steinbach encourages all who embark on these delightful tunes to feel free to improvise, ornament, and experiment with the suggested chords...Beautifully produced with no corners cut (typical of Schott publications), the music is collected into nine sets: reels, jigs, slip jigs, polkas, marches, hornpipes, Caralon tunes, folksongs, and airs. As Steinbach writes, 'You don't necessarily have to be aware of the fact that this music belongs to an aural tradition unbroken over many centuries to enjoy the spontaneity, wit, and humor of Irish sessions.'"— The Flutist Quarterly
