Scherzo from Symphony No. 6
from: G. Mahler (1860-1911)
For SAT&B recorders in turn. The order of the 2nd and 3rd movements of this work has long been a matter of dispute, so no number has been ascribed to the Scherzo.
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.
