1st Mvt. from Symphony No. 6, requiring various recorders
from: G. Mahler (1860-1911)
At pitch, calling for alto in F, alto in Eb, tenor, bass, soprano and sopranino. There are numerous optional low e’s for alto in F, and unusual high notes, not always optional.
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.
