Dietrich Schnabel, Symphonic Dances (2012)

This collection of five dances in symphonic style was written by Dietrich Schnabel in 2012. It contains a cheerful polonaise, an energetic paso doble, a Viennese waltz, a grand funeral march and last but not least a ferocious sabre dance. A joy for all!

Chiel Meijering, My Final Fantasy (2009)

We'll be working on an impressive pop-art composition by the Amsterdam based composer Chiel Meijering. Meijering composes accessible music based on short and poppy melodies. His compositions for recorder ensemble are not supposed to sound serious, allthough they are seriously difficult to play for some of the parts. My Final Fantasy is unconventionally scored for S S A T B B Gb Gb Contra.

There is a significant different in the style of writing between the top and the bottom parts. Please do look at and pick yout parts carefully. The tempo is a spicy minim = 90
