Music for Alto Recorder Friday, August 25, 2017

recommended by Barb M., Keyboard and Folk Music Specialist

49045571It’s not easy to find music for alto recorder, much less for alto recorder with piano accompaniment! These pieces, Recercada 1 & 2, are by Diego Ortiz (c. 1510-c. 1570), and are at a Level Three difficulty for the alto recorder player. These pieces were written in the Renaissance era, when improvisation was a highly developed art form.  Suggestions are included in this collection so that the recorder player can experiment with improvisation. The pieces are quite pleasing when played as written, also.

Try this out, and enjoy! Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs.
