A network for historic guitars and vihuelas
I have had contact from a fairly virtuoso recorder player looking to explore some duets with 19th-century guitar, but I can't think of any original repertoire for the combination. Any ideas? I'm not interested in arrangements of flute and guitar pieces, or suchlike, only pieces specifically for recorder and guitar from the 19th century.
I have played a work by Leonhard von Call with recorder. "Serenade por Violincelle ou Flute et Guitarre, Op. 84". I`not sure if it was intended specifically for recorder but the recorderist (what does one call a recorder player?) found that it fit on the instrument very well with no adjustments necessary. She introduced me to the music of von Call and maintained that his flute/guitar music was intended for recorder/flauto dolce but payable on other instruments. I cannot confirm this, I`m only relating her ideas.
As you know publishers titled pieces so they would sell the most copies (ie. "Violincelle ou Flute") and it seems many of the pieces were composed with that in mind as well so it might take some playing through material with your recorder player to find the ones that fit most comfortably.
Did You find some music for the recorder/Csakan and guitar.
