The Baroque Recorder contains twenty pieces by composers including Vivaldi, Purcell, Couperin and Telemann but also includes works by lesser-known composers. All the pieces can be performed with or without the accompaniment, which is suitable for the piano or harpsichord/ basso continuo and comes in both written out and figured bass versions. The music is written in appropriate keys and the technical standard varies between easy and advanced, so you don't have to be an expert to play some of the melodies in this book. The authentic atmosphere and styles of these pieces make this book a must for the Baroque devotee. Enjoy playing the beautiful music of Vivaldi, Purcell, Couperin,Telemann and other masters of their art

The Baroque Recorder bevat twintig stukken van Vivaldi, Purcell, Couperin en Telemann, maar ook van minder bekende componisten. Alle stukken zijn prima speelbaar met of zonder de bijgeleverde begeleiding - op piano of op klavecimbel/basso continuo. Voor de puristen is de becijferde bas toegevoegd. De sfeer en stijl van de stukken maken dit boek een must voor de barokliefhebber.

Wahrend der Barock-Periode wurde ein schier unendlicher Reichtum an Blockflotenmusik geschaffen - sowohl von bekannten als auch unbekannten Komponisten, da die Blockflote zu jener Zeit sehr beliebt war. The Baroque Recorder enthalt Musik von Meistern dieser Periode. Die Bassnotation und eine ausgeschriebene Begleitung ermoglichen die Wahl zwischen einer Klavier- oder einer traditionellen Cembalobegleitung.

The Baroque Recorder est un excellent ouvrage contenant des pieces d'eminents compositeurs baroques. L'accompagnement est propose sous la forme ecrite et en basse chiffree, pouvant etre confie soit au piano soit au clavecin. L'authenticite et le respect du style ont ete soigneusement respectes.

Nel periodo barocco fu composta un'enorme quantita di musica per flauto dolce (strumento molto in voga a quei tempi) - sia da noti compositori, sia da autori sconosciuti. The Baroque Recorder contiene musica dei grandi Maestri di questo periodo. Le notazioni del Basso continuo e l'accompagnamento incluso permettono la scelta tra l'accompagnamento al piano e il tradizionale accompagnamento al cembalo.

  • February 10, 2010 Missing CD, although selection is okay.

    Was VERY disappointed that book was missing the cd as it is listed in the Play-along section. The actual selection is adequate. Has some of the typical sounds one would expect of the different fast paced tunes.

  • May 27, 2007 Lovely recorder book with piano accompaniment

    Beautiful book with beautiful music. The pull-out recorder part makes it easy to play together. Our children (aged between 9 and 14) enjoy playing the recorder parts, while I play the piano. Recommended if you are looking for easy-listening baroque music that is not too difficult and yet...

    not boringly easy.
