Lannah Fitzgerald


Matheus Andre Reichert is a well-known name in the flute community. As a composer and virtuoso flutist, M.A. Reichert (1830-1880) produced a number of challenging works for flute that are still played today. One such work is Reichert’s 7 Daily Exercises, Op. 5, first published in 1872. This book of music, consisting of seven multi-page etudes, is popular among advanced and even professional flute players. Although written for the flute, Reichert’s 7 Daily Exercises has the potential to serve as an excellent, yet demanding, technique book for saxophone.
