Item Number: MM.DER1023
Throughout this book the emphasis is on technique, but in order that this technique may be used for musical expression immediately, most of the book consists of music; technical exercises are kept to a minimum. Volume I of this book covered the low register of the recorder. The present volume extends the range of notes up to the third octave G, the highest note commonly written for the alto recorder. This book is divided into 15 main sections. In each, some new point of technique is introduced and exercises and practice pieces are given. Pieces unrelated to the main topic of the section are also included. These present further difficulties connected with techniques introduced in previous sections.
