SP2411 Recorders without Borders, Volume II  by Nina Stern / Book and CD

Features tunes and dances Nina came across in her musical travels for recorders and percussion. Repertory ranges from dances of Medieval and Renaissance Europe to songs from the Caribbean, Africa, South America, Asia and the Balkans. The melodies and beats are irresistible to children and adults alike. This music, while challenging, is fun and engaging.

These pieces are intended for beginning ot intermediate recorder players. Only the notes of one octabe – from low d to middle d – are used. The arrangements appear in order of increasing difficulty.

A play-along CD accompanies the book. The CD is intended to provide an idea of what the pieces can sound like and as a play-along tool for instructors and players. Each tune has four musical tracks: 1) Performance of the piece with all the parts; 2) Percussion parts only; 3) Percussion parts with Recorder 2; 4) Percussion parts withe Recorder 1.
