Summary 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.
Subject Recorder (Musical instrument)
