Telemann for Two, Volume 2 arranged for Two Flutes [Playing score(s)]
- Staff Pick
The idea to add another flute part to these Telemann Fantasias is not new, but this is a really authentic adaptation. The sharing out of the original melodic line between the two parts certainly helps learn the harmonic structure which will be very useful knowledge when going back to the solo version. You can also learn about counterpoint in a hands-on way that is very valuable. That's before you get to the fact that they're all great to play. Just excellent all round!
From the Publisher
What could be more delightful than playing Telemann's duets, or Telemann's Fantasias? Sharon Sparrow and Jeffery Zook have created a remarkable complete set of duet adaptations of the 12 Fantasias, so authentic that they sound as if they could have been composed as two-part inventions by Telemann himself. In these duets, Telemann's original works are shared between players, mixed with counterpoint to enhance the once-solo works. This publication is Volume II of II, and includes Fantasias 7-12; Volume I (Fantasias 1-6) is available separately.
