Shannon GSM1025 - Shannon Duos Vol 5 (Glen Shannon)
SHANNON DUOS Vol. 5 by Glen Shannon Easy Breezy is a light bebop swing, to be played in a very relaxed but deliberate manner with the tenor acting like the double bass in a jazz duo. Two on a Raft a fun bluegrass-inspired song with bits of ragtime feel thrown in. The most technically challenging piece in the duet series. Papillons a two-part invention in quasi-Baroque style, evocative of frolicking butter flies flitting about in a game of tag.

Shannon GSM1028 - Shannon Duos Vol. 8 (Glen Shannon)
Shannon Duos Vol 8 by Glen Shannon SCREEN DOOR RAG evokes imagery of a youthful summer with warm breezes through the house, pies cooling on the windowsill, and daydreams of the country fair next week. Storm clouds may rumble through, but the gentle rain will soon give way to sun once more. LA TRISTESS is a slow dialogue, in a moody setting reminiscent of a Baroque-style ground bass. As the players search for meaning in tragedy, they console each other with the comforting resonance of their low notes. CANNED YAMS invites flippancy and thinly veiled conceit. Swing the 8ths and be sure to observe the staccato marks to add levity and cotrast to the swing. Take the repeat to prolong the fun! Intermediate and up. Duet playing score, each duet is 3 pages , page turn problems have been avoided by including an extra loose folio containing the 3rd page. Duet for tenor and bass recorders. Photo Audio

SELECTED PIECES from THE MAGIC FLUTE by W.A. Mozart after an arrangement by Wilhelm Klingenbrunner (ca. 1807) for two Csakans or Recorders. The Csakan, a recorder shaped like a walking stick, was fashionable and widely played in Vienna on the early part of the 19th century. An ideal instrument for outdoor music making. Arrangements of popular operatic melodies were a welcome and highly valued enrichment of the repertoire. 10 aria arrangements for alto & tenor or 2 tenors, Intermediate & Up
TANGO by CARLOS GARDEL arranged by Diego Collati for either two ALTO RECORDERS or ALTO & TENOR RECORDERS. The name Carlos Gardel is still inextricably linked with tango music because of his numerous compositions, his charismatic voice and acting talents. Gardel, as performer of his own works, became one of the most important musical personalities of the early 20th century. A legend far beyond his home of Argentina. Five tangos-'Melodia de arrabal', 'Por una cabeza', 'El ida que me quieras', 'Mi Buenos Aires querido' & 'Volver'. Upper Intermediate to Advanced Well worth the effort! Lots of fun! NEW! Photo
