First three Mvts. from Symphony No. 5, arr. for one player alternating between Soprano, Alto, Tenor & Bass and optional Sopranino
from: G. Mahler (1860-1911)
At pitch. There are high F#’s and A’s, and low E’s, ’most all of which are given with alternatives. The 2nd movement is arranged for alto recorder only. Includes two pages of translations into English. An arrangement of the fourth movement, the famous Adagietto, can be found in the Recorder and Keyboard section.
These arrangements of symphonies, of Mahler in particular, are especially for folks who know the movements from which they are taken, so that the context can come to mind while playing—but they will also be great at introducing people to these works. They keep very close to the original register, but may profitably be run through in at least three different ways: 1. using just one recorder, changing between F and C fingering, 2. going through with each required size, 1st playing all the soprano sections, then alto, etc., or 3. switching as indicated in the scores.
