400 Years of Recorder Music

400 Years of Recorder Music composed by Dr. William Weiss. For Recorder (Soprano). Saddle-stitched, Solos. Classic. Intermediate. Book. 64 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.93727).

ISBN 9780871668950. Classic. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

An anthology of some of the best recorder music from the early Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, Classic, and early Romantic periods. The music of historically well-known as well as lesser-known and obscure composers has been included. Solos, duets, some trios, and quartets from the various periods and schools (German, Italian, French, and English) have been chosen because of their musical content and charm, primarily, and because they illustrate and typify the musical values of the eras in which they were composed. In some instances, keys have been transposed, signature and bar lines have been added. Separate movements, taken from sonatas and suites, have been included as well, in addition to some thematic material. The arrangements are primarily for the descant or soprano recorder. The alto, tenor and bass recorders are included, however, in duets, trios, and quartets. Phrasing breath marks have been indicated for use at the player's discretion.

    I am enjoying learning to play the pieces in this collection. The music is presented well and the many selections are good for solo, duets, and trios. It is great value for the price!
