Around the World in 20 Bassoon Duets


From the Publisher

This delightful musical tour of 20 countries offers a wide variety of styles, in the form of fun and challenging duets of varying difficulty. Each piece imitates the music of local traditional styles, with some more caricature than true pastiche. Egypt, for example, is written in the style often used by western films and video games to suggest desert landscapes. Other countries, including Trinidad and Tobago, Mexico, Azerbaijan and Bulgaria, are written as more faithful representations of traditional folk music and dances. These duets make great little concert pieces, and would also work well for GCSE and A level ensemble performances.
