Serenade arr. descant (or treble) & tenor recorder


This is an arrangement for descant (or treble recorder) playing the melody and tenor recorder playing the accompaniment of this familiar piece from the string quartet repertoire. The music possesses classical beauty and is sustained in its quality and whilst attributed to Haydn is now known to have been composed by Roman Hoffstetter. The music in the movement does sound easy to play although there are challenges in playing music of this era well and musically. In performance, the articulation of the notes needs to be consistent - the melody is to be played legato (Andante Cantabile) and the accompaniment staccato or at least in a detached manner. A tempo of 100 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the bar is suggested. In the realisation it is a descant recorder that plays the melody.
