The melody part comes out of one stereo speaker and the harmony part comes out of the other speaker. By adjusting your stereo’s balance control you can isolate either part so you can play the other part along with it.

This CD may be used with any of the books for any of the instruments in the Irish Fiddle Tunes for Two series.

Reviews...

“The latest offerings of fiddle tunes arranged for recorders by Deborah Greenblatt are welcome additions to the folk repertory for our instrument.

While the arrangements are not complex, the interactions between the voices are interesting. Some are primarily homophonic, while others display more independence in the lines. Most rhythms are straightforward, though there are a few with little tricky bits. There is nothing, however, that requires advanced rhythmic skill and that cannot be mastered by practice.

The melodies are catchy. Slurs are indicated, which is useful. Metronome markings are given.

Well-suited to intermediate players, and some of the selections are easy enough for more advanced beginners. Because of the pleasing nature of the melodies and of the arrangements, more experienced players with an interest in folk music will also enjoy them. They would make for nice concert programming.”
