What are some good unaccompanied pieces for flute with contrasting movements?

I am auditioning for a non-major college orchestra this coming fall, and I wanted to prepare, but I am not familiar with many unaccompanied pieces.

    Here is a portion of a list I use with my students. I also strongly suggest that you go to and purchase their booklet that is a guide to repertoire for the flute, listed by difficulty grades. There are also many other good flute literature reference books, and some publishers and dealers will also have their own listings. Try
