"Finally, after too long a wait we have the English version of Une Simple Flute....I urge every flute player, every flute student, and every library to get this book, devour it, relish its practicality and freshness, and savor its savoir faire." --The Flute Network
"Debost's writing style is refreshingly candid and reaches flutists of all levels. His quotes and footnotes reflect an inquiring mind, broad knowledge, and a superb intellect, all of which are inspiring to encounter. His wisdom is shared simply and directly. Other points are made with great
humor or with thought-provoking metaphor, or poetic simile." --Leone Buyse, Professor of Flute and Chamber Music at Rice University and former acting principal flute of the Boston Symphony
"It should be required reading for every student of the flute. Debost has excellent ideas and expresses them clearly and interestingly. Certainly a must have on the book shelf." --Patricia George
"Michel Debost used to tell us in his classes at the Conservatorie de Paris that his methods were not the Bible, but rather a 'gospel according to Saint Michel'....This is a new kind of reference, resting on more than fifty years of experience, full of sensitivity and good sense, with little
dogmatism and lots of intelligence....The curious student as well as the established teacher will plunge into the book, and raise their head three minutes later having learned something new that they will want to put to the test immediately. The book is a delight to read, handling language with ease
and pertinence, capable of surprising us with each turn of phrase." --Emmanuel Pahud, solo flutist with Berliner Philharmonicker
