The Telemann Fantasies are among my favorite pieces for solo flute. I have my students learn them as etudes because they encompass a wide variety of keys, meters, tempi, articulations, and technical demands of sound and embouchure (especially in the wide leaps).  I personally enjoy experimenting with ornamentation, especially on repeats.  I require my students to write their own ornamental variations which is a great exercise for understanding phrase structure and Baroque style.  My favorite flute recording of all time is Jean-Pierre Rampal's version of these pieces.

There are many, many ways to interpret these pieces including playing them with or without vibrato, so I never get tired of playing them. The performances here are my interpretations at that moment. I will probably play them differently the next time!
