Recorder Rally is for all the recorder players that I have met in the U.S. and Canada since I gave my first concert in New York in 1992. Since that time, I have always enjoyed the many occasions when North American friends of the recorder get together to play.
For me, music is like telling a story about a journey through time and space. Recorder Rally is a short journey because it doesn’t contain many measures, but I hope that it will stimulate all players to feel enthusiastic and excited about being part of our wonderful recorder community.
This piece is dedicated to all ARS members and especially to Martha Bixler, who has played such an important and pivotal role in the development of the recorder movement here. (text continued in download)
