Telemann for Two Volume 1 Fantasias 1-6 arranged for Two Flutes
- Award-winning product

The idea to add another flute part to these Telemann Fantaisias is not new, but this is a really authentic adaptation. The sharing out of the orginal 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 duets, or playing the Telemann Fantasias? Sharon Sparrow and Jeffery Zook have created a remarkable set of duet adaptations of the Fantasias, sounding as if Telemann himself had composed them as two-part inventions. The original Telemann works are shared between the two players, mixed with counterpoint to enhance the authentic solo works. The result is equally suitable for formal recitals and recreational duet playing! The present publication includes two performance scores of their settings of Fantasias 1-6, with a Volume II to include Fantasias 7-12.
From the arrangers: Telemann's Fantasias are some of the most loved pieces in our solo flute repertoire. Both of us having grown up with a large background in piano, we feel one of the most important aspects of playng these solo works is understanding and hearing the implied harmonic structure underneath the solo line. Since there is no harmonic indication or piano part, we've often improvised a second flute part to help our students 'hear' these harmonies.
