Flautist and pedagogue Marcel Moyse's Tone Development Through Interpretation collects 90 melodic lines of instructional value for the performer, organised according to register, dynamics, and other musical characteristics.

An essential tool for students of the flute, but useful for players of any wind instrument, this anthology of excerpts from songs, operas, and the orchestral repertoire arms a performer with the practice tools to confront any interpretational challenge using the appropriate playing technique. As a supplement, the volume includes piano accompaniments for nine of the more substantial excerpts.

As flute players will well know, Marcel Moyse has iconic status in the flute world. My teacher recommended this book because it provides a variety of melodies as a basis for developing tone.
