Recorders without Borders Vol. II
Arr. by Nina Stern
Book and CD
13 Beginning to Intermediate Recorder Pieces from Around the World using one octave (low D to middle D) and Percussion. These pieces are examples of tunes and dances Stern has come across in her own musical travels. Each piece is arranged for 2 soprano recorder parts and usually 2 or 3 percussion parts. The arrangements have been made in such a way that all students in a classroom can be contributing members of the ensemble. Even if students have mastered only several notes, or one simple rhythm, there is a place for them in the group and the ensemble would not be complete without them. Arrangements appear in order of increasing difficulty.
An enclosed play-along CD is intended to provide an idea of what the pieces can sound like and as a play-along tool for instructors and players using this book. Each tune has 4 musical tracks associated with it: (1) performance with all parts (2) percussion parts only (3) percussion parts with Recorder 2 (4) percussion parts with Recorder 1.
For beginning to intermediate players.
Recorder notes used: D, E, F, F#, G, A, B, high C, high D.
Percussion instruments used: frame drums, finger cymbals, tambourine, hand clapping, ankle or sleigh bells, rattles, agogo bell, claves, shaker, conga, djembe, bass drum.
