This beautifully produced two-volume set of solo recorder music will enhance the repertoire of any serious recorder player. It is clearly typeset and well laid out on larger than A4 paper, with strong laminated covers, Canadian bound: a spiral to open flat and a spine to stack neatly. The two volumes, each of 112 pages, represent some of the finest Baroque solo works ever written.
This core repertoire represents the major baroque works for solo flute, transposed for recorder with choices of transposition. Music you come back to again and again.
Book 2: Telemann Fantasias for violin; Marais Couplets de Folies (Les Folies d'Espagne); Six movements from Bach's solo violin partitas; Twenty-nine movements from Bach's cello suites, PAR 109, £20.00
Telemann's fantasias for violin are much less well known than his flute fantasias but have music of the same quality and imagination. Marais' Couplets de Folies are full of ideas, adventure and beauty. Bach's cello suites must be the best music of the genre, often difficult but supremely satisfying. A lifetime's study - in so few pages.
