22 classical and traditional pieces arranged for equal descant (soprano) and treble (alto) recorders of intermediate standard. Most are in easy keys. There are 22 pieces in the book, some are longer, but most are short - one page, several are two or three pages. We've tried to be as varied as possible and have included both classical and traditional tunes, slow and fast pieces, easy and difficult, ones to play straight away and others to work on, but we hope you find them all enjoyable and fun. Arrangements include extracts from: Beethoven’s Für Elise, Prokofiev’s The Duck from Peter and the Wolf, Dvorák’s Humoresque, Holst’s Jupiter from The Planets, Loch Lomond, Grieg’s Morning from Peer Gynt, Elgar’s March from Pomp and Circumstance, Chopin’s Prelude Op.28, Boccherini’s Minuet, Bizet’s Air de Toréador from Carmen, Beethoven’s Minuet in G, Glinka’s Intermezzo, Tchaikovsky’s Andante Cantabile from Symphony No.5 , Brahms’ Waltz Op.39 and more, some of which we expect you're unlikely to know because we wanted to include an element of musical exploration and adventure. Have fun! If you're looking for easier duets, you might like 'Easy Traditional Duets for Descant and Treble Recorder'.
