This book provides an excellent collection of pieces to practice by yourself. The tunes have lots of scale runs and repetitive patterns to get your fingers working and improve fluency. Van Eyck was a blind Dutch player who used to improvise variations on popular tunes.Whoever wrote them down did us a favour!
These pieces are short and fun to play. I love feeling the connection to history. Highly recommended.
Van Eyck - what can I say? It's the ultimate recorder book. If you are a beginner, play the melody and when you're adventures enough you move on to the rest of the modes. Highly recommended!
Brilliant - really interesting to play this music. I would recommend as can be done on tenor as well.
Arrived promptly and my consignment was split up so that it arrived quickly. The music is exceptional ... a great thick book of solos from a famous work in the repertoire.
