New in February 2017:

Cover G 12.032Anonymous (L. Detry?): Sonata d minor
for alto recorder and basso continuo
This Sonata, composed as original music for the recorder by an anonymous composer, is part of the collection of Crown Prince Friedrich Ludwig of Württemberg-Stuttgart (1691–1731), who himself played both the recorder and the transverse flute. It combines elements of the French and Italian styles, opening with an Allegro and an Andante, followed by four dance movements. Captivating melodies alternate with broken chords. This Sonata will be an interesting and rewarding task for more advanced players, with enjoyment and variety guaranteed. The editor of this first edition is Peter Thalheimer, who also realized the figured bass.
G 12.032, score and 2 parts

Cover G 12.049Georg Philipp Telemann: 12 Fantasias for alto recorder solo
arranged after the fantasias for viola da gamba solo
Telemann's Fantasias for Viola da Gamba solo were only recently discovered, having been presumed lost for more than two centuries. Monika Mandelartz took up the challenge of editing the Fantasias for the treble recorder. Numerous personal judgement decisions had to be made to reduce the multi-part composition to a single part. The result is a version eminently suitable for playing on a treble recorder, and may also serve as yet another example of Telemann's brilliance: Our contribution to the year of the 250th anniversary of Telemann's death. Don't miss this exciting and inspiring pieces of music.

New in August 2016:

Cover G 22.002Rainer Lischka: Hip!
for recorder orchestra (Sino S A A T T B Gb) and samba whistle
violoncello, double bass and/or bassoon ad lib.

Samba is regarded as an expression of the pure joie de vivre so typical of Brazil. This type of music is most often associated with the Rio Carnival, however, Samba is an important part of Brazilian culture throughout the year. In "Hip!", Rainer Lischka captures this zest for life, playing with rhythmic patterns and melodies in a masterly fashion, and combining all these elements into a brilliant, sparkling musical fireworks display, which is bound to quickly become a highlight in the repertoire of any recorder orchestra.

New in March 2016:

Cover G 12.043Tommaso Albinoni: 12 Sonatas, Vol. II (Sonatas 5–8)
for 3 recorders (AAT), bass recorder ad lib. and b.c.
Vol. II of Albinoni's very popular sonatas is available now. Once again, it contains four wonderful sonatas. An original arrangement for three recorders and bass was made before 1740 and is the base of this edition, which was extended by the original continuo part with figures. Albinoni took these short dance movements and filled them with witty melodies and rich harmonic features. These sonatas offer a wide range of possible instrumentations for performance from quartet to recorder orchestra, with or without continuo instrument or continuo group.

New in September 2015:

Cover G 11.015Giuseppe Porsile: Posa sopra d’un faggio
Cantata for soprano voice, alto recorder and b.c.
Together with Johann Joseph Fux (1660–1741) and Antonio Caldara (approx. 1671–1736), Porsile held a prominent post at the Habsburg court in Vienne being mainly responsible for the musical activities. He composed round about 20 operas and 13 oratorios as well as a considerable amount of cantatas and instrumental music. He also served as a singing-master to the Empress Elisabetta Cristina and her daughters Maria Josepha and Maria Amalia.
The cantata Posa sopra d'un faggio is featured by rich and touching dialogues between voice and recorder. Also in Vienna Porsile preserved his melodic style, which was characteristic for the opera in Naples at his time.
G 11.015, score and 3 parts

Cover G 12.041Gioachino Rossini: Opera Melodies
arranged for 2 flageolets (recorders in c) by C. Eugène Roy
Rossini for recorder? At the first glance this may appear to be strange, but this arrangement for 2 flageolets was printed approx. 1819 in Paris only a few years after the premiere of the operas. The flageolet is one of the several successors of the baroque recorder and can be replaced easily by a soprano recorder.
C. Eugène Roy (approx. 1790–1827) was a French musician who had acquired some standing as a flageolet virtuoso, published a flageolet tutor and several arrangements of favourite music of his times and composed for his instrument, e.g. the 24 Little Duets, published by Girolamo.
Rossini's melodies from The Barber of Seville, Othello, The Thieving Magpie among others. This is Italian opera at it's best – original music for recorder!
G 12.041, playing score

Cover G 12.042Rainer Lischka: Dance Garden
Eleven trios for three recorders (AAT)
"The Dance Garden is an undefined, imaginary place, perhaps a little fairytale-like. Written to be performed completely without electronics or rhythm instruments, without bass and amplifier, the music has a delicate, out-of-time character. Like in a miniature theatre, cheerful and, occasionally, sad persons appear." Thus writes the composer in the preface.
From waltz through salsa and tango up to folk dances such as the Rheinländer, the book contains a variety of dances which players and audience alike will enjoy – along  with a number of pieces with a more meditative character. As in all of Lischka's compositions, the movements contain an element of fun, at the same time dealing with certain common difficulties encountered in ensemble playing.

New in May 2015:

Cover G 12.040Giuseppe Sammartini: 3 More Sonatas (Ms. Parma 2, 6, 14)
for alto recorder and basso continuo
Here we present three more sonatas for recorder by Giuseppe Sammartini taken from the important Parma manuscript. The sonata Parma No. 2 is one of the few ones in four movements included in this source. The other two sonatas have three movements. The beautiful melodies once more prove Sammartinis creativity, as well as the wide spread harmonic range of the single movements shows the enormous skill and ability of the composer. A two-page audit report shows in detail the necessary corrections that were made due to the partly problematic source(s).
G 12.040, score and 2 parts

New in April 2015:

Cover G 12.039Tommaso Albinoni: 12 Sonatas, Vol. I (Sonatas 1–4)
for 3 recorders (AAT), bass recorder ad lib. and b.c.
Albinoni's 12 sonatas or balletti for two violins, viola and b.c. were composed before 1728. Before 1740 these sonatas were adapted by an unknown arranger for three recorders and bass instrument by transposing them upwards, some by a minor third, some by a fourth. The present edition adds to this arrangement the original basso continuo part with the original figures, which offers several and colourful combination of instruments for performance. The late baroque Venice is becoming musically alive here.
G 12.039, score and 5 parts

New in September 2014:

Cover G 12.035Samuel Scheidt: 10 Symphonies
for 2 melodic instruments (soprano or tenor recorders/violins), obbligato bass instrument (violoncello/bassoon) and b.c.
Samuel Scheidt ranks, along with Michael Praetorius, Heinrich Schütz and Johann Hermann Schein, among the major composers of the early baroque period in Germany. From Scheidt's collection LXX Symphonien, published in 1644, ten symphonies were selected, which represent all seven used keys of the day and a great diversity of styles. Scheidt impressively combines conservative and modern features, counterpoint and concerto-style elements.
G 12.035, score and 3 playing scores

Cover G 21.006Joel Levine: Between the Lines
8 Fantasies for alto recorder
These fantasies are for you: the recorder player. They are fantasies that include references to jazz – but learning to play them will not make you a jazz player. Some of the fantasies use quotes from the jazz tradition and show elements of the different jazz-styles. You may use them as inspiring exercises – or you let them become music playing around with the tone, the emphasis, the sound quality, the vibrato, the articulation or the dynamics. Make them work for you! Partly, these pieces will be a challenge under technical or rhythmical aspects, but you will have a lot of fun practising them.
G 21.006, playing score

Cover G 22.001Hartmut Tripp: Punktspiel
for recorder orchestra (S A A T T B Gb Sb)
Notes are points and also above the notes you'll find points frequently: the "point notes" have to be played staccato and sputato. Latin American passages with the emphasis on rhythmical elements quickly alternate with more plain legato sections inspired by minimal music. This original and witty piece is living from the contrast between these different parts.
