I have just published a collection of 12 renaissance duets from Italian author Gioseffo Zarlino. These duets where adapted to modern melodic instruments and for each of them you will find:
Modern Adaptations in C, Bb, Eb and Bass clef.
The modern adaptation was made with the melodica in mind: almost all the ranges of the 12 duets are already within the limits of a standard 32-keys melodica, I had to make a very few octave transpositions when needed.
You can play these duets with another melodica or, thanks to the Bb, Eb and bass clef versions, with many different instruments: recorders, flutes, saxes, clarinets, cellos, etc.
Daren, that’s definitely something I am going to do. The idea is to record duets between melodica (or recorder) and other modern instruments…
I have already tried to involve Suzuki in this project, without success :/ I would love to use a W37, which I think would be perfect for this kind of music, but so far I haven’t been able to have a feedback from them.
Maybe they’re watching this forum or some of the members have a direct contact with them?
I now have Zarlino’s “Duets for melodic instruments” in hand. It’s a lovely edition with generous full sized (8X11″) sheets for the music stand, suitable for spiral binding at your local copy center or office supply store if that’s desired.
