I need some unaccompanied flute solos?

I am going to make a Youtube account of my performances for some constructive criticism. I don't know any pianists that have time to put pieces together for the sake of Youtube, so I've been looking for some unaccompanied pieces. So far I have:

Image: Eugene Bozza

Muczynski: Three Preludes for Unaccompanied Flute

Telemann Flute Fantasy in A Major

Varèse - Density 21.5

Syrinx by Claude Debussy

Sonata Appassionata for flute solo by Karg-Elert

Anything to add to the list?

If you're wondering, I am no longer taking private lessons (I had to stop about 3 months ago), but I still arrange little "checkups" with the flute professor at the nearest university. I've been playing for a little over 7 years, and I have been taking lessons with a fine teacher from the very beginning.

    Added - check out the list on the National Flute Association site - you might have to buy the booklet, but it is worth every penny.

    Original post: These are all worthy works you have chosen - i have played them all in concert, and have taught them for years. My students in HS particularly like the Muczynski, and then are less likely to complain when I assign them his Sonata - until they start to work on it . . .yikes!

    I do not think that the Varese or Bozza will *carry* well on YouTube - subtleties seem to get lost there. You know, NOBODY has a recording out of the Persichetti Parable - would you believe?

    Here is what is in my library - some duplicates and annotations are becasue of competitions and adjudications my students are in, and I need those multiple entries. Go look over what has to offer, too. And - does Ian Clarke grab you at all? Lots of fun. I do not play any extended technique works to speak of - old dog, new tricks. Good luck - have fun- let us know when thins are up.

    I can't name any pieces specifically, but a good place to look would be or freescores, both offer a bunch of free sheet music.
