Waltz - PtRM 2017
By James Chaudoir 2016
This piece is simply entitled Waltz, which -- when standing alone -- presents a wide range of stylistic interpretation. To further encourage this, the performance instructions, "As you wish," are not meant to be a nod to The Princess Bride, but rather to provide the opportunity for players to freely experiment with the composition, so as to mold the piece to fit their musical tastes and skills.

Also noteworthy about this piece is that there are no expression or articulation marks. We, as recorder players, are accustomed to reading such music, generally referred to as urtext; however, in this case, it is intended to offer further experimental opportunities for the performers to literally shape the music as they wish.  (text continued in download)
