Flute sliding tone
Hi everyone! Just after 2:45 for example in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpuCSQpdlzM Mr. O’Grada seems to be sliding up from one note to the next — do I understand correctly that he is sliding his lower note finger off the hole? Is something else happening there?
And in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PoNm3kMqCI Ms. Geremia also seems to be sliding up to some high notes, like at 0:17 and just before 0:23, but with a much smaller interval. Does anyone understand what is happening? I’ve tried watching this in slow-mo a few thousand times, but… embouchure changes? Keys? Fingers? Not sure at all.
Help, please 🙂
