Music of Spain and South America for Flute
Author: Allan Alexander
Publisher: ADG Productions
Music of Spain and South America for Flute by Allan Alexander contains 42 pieces which can be played solo or with a chord instrument. This great collection includes music from the Spain and South America. Most of the pieces have been extended with variations, which make the tunes a more suitable length for performances and are a lot of fun for the flutist to play.
Every tune in the book is included on the digitally mastered CD. Though the tunes are very effective as solo material, Allan chose to record them with flutist Wendy Norman. Wendy has given a skillful, delightful performance of the music and Allan has rendered the chords artfully. The result is a really lovely CD; listening will be a pleasure.
For the player who is new to music of Spain and South America, the recording will give insights into the melodies, and it will allow the flutist who has no access to a chord instrument to hear and play along with the guitar as the flute part can be turned down by fading one channel. For those who know some of these wonderful tunes, it will be a joy to have the music and hear them played by two musicians who obviously love to play this music together. The CD which comes with the book has all 42 of the tunes in the same order in which they appear in the book.
The CD will give you insights into the music, and it will be enjoyable to listen to on its own merit. For additional information, be sure to check out Allan's web site.
