A Little Recorder Music

Mozart/arr. M.C. Handel and Paul Jennings

As a part of our celebration of Mozart's 250th birthday, we are giving your young recorder players a new arrangement of the best known movement from Eine Kleine Nachtmusik. While we have maintained the original key and have orchestrated it directly from the original score, it has been shortened.

To give you the greatest flexibility and to allow your players to grow as they perform it, we recorded six versions of the work, and have provided two different recorder parts: one quite easy and one closer to the original melody. There are also two different tempos, each shown with each part and with tracks only. On the CD with your magazine, you will find the faster recording and both the more advanced part (track 8) and the simpler part (track 25). The other three, slower versions of the recording are provided as quality MP3 downloads on our web site. (See next.)
