Klezmer music is a continually evolving style yet with firm traditional roots in the past. It is full of catchy tunes while allowing for a wide range of interpretations that cannot always be written down in all their subtleties.
In “Klezmer Flute Duets”, Michael Lösch has made arrangements, for two flutes, of his personal selection from this huge repertoire of traditional pieces and added five of his own compositions inspired by this evocative music.
Available here are opportunities to extend the pupil’s learning: listening, thinking about syncopation, and about how minor keys work and what effect accidentals have. Despite a few awkward page turns, these are great fun to play.
