The Recorder Today

Book - 1990
Rate this:
This book is about one of the most widely played and yet least understood of instruments, the recorder. Initially revived at the turn of the century, it now has an impressive modern repertoire, much of it using innovative instrumental techniques. The aim of the present work has been to make available to players, composers, teachers and interested non-specialists the sort of practical information they need in order to approach the modern recorder repertoire with understanding. History, music, technique and the leading figures in the field are discussed and described in an informal and readable style. The scope and content of the catalogue of contemporary compositions contained in the second part of the book will come as a surprise to many. Out of about 800 works currently in print Eve O'Kelly has made a selection of some 400, classified by instrumentation which will be of tremendous use to players and teachers at all levels. As a work of reference for the specialist, or as a companion for the amateur player, this book is invaluable.
