Event Name:Bicinia 1642 - 2012 with Tom Beets, recorder
Event Type(s):Class

In this session Tom Beets will guide us through two of his favourite recorder duets. The first piece, La Tristesse, is a delightfully sober yet challenging piece by Glen Shannon. It develops a rather serious ground motive into an emotional narrative, using even the highest register of the tenor and bass recorder. The second piece is a fantaisie from the Fantaisies à deux parties print of Nicolas Métru (Paris 1642). This set, although clearly composed with didactic purposes in mind, contains vivid and Italian-style bicinia that are fun to investigate and play. Both a barred and an unbarred version is available. Both pieces are set for tenor and bass recorder. It goes without saying that the top part can also be played on a soprano. Please, if possible, prepare both parts of these delightful duets. Geared to: upper intermediate to advanced recorders. Pitch: A=440.
