Performer's Edition for Tombone / Cello / Bassoon / B.C. Baritone
The new Canadian Brass Flex for Two series features a collection of 20 duet arrangements of Canadian Brass hits along with many other familiar classical favorites. These newly arranged grade 2-3.5 flex duets can be performed by any two instruments and focus on teaching critical listening and performing skills while encouraging real collaboration between players. By incorporating the special Canadian Brass DNA, these arrangements are fun to play, enjoyable for players and audiences alike, and are perfect for recitals, contests, and festival adjudications.
These arrangements are written to support all instruments and can be mixed and matched in countless ways. Any Flex for Two instrumental book can be used with any other Flex for Two book in any combination of instruments. Within each duet, the melody is evenly distributed between each part, with both musicians being treated as equal partners. Because of this, critical listening skills are developed as players work to match tonal quality, balance, and style.
The following duets are included:
ALLEGRO ASSAI from BRANDENBURG CONCERTO No. 2
DUETTO SENZA BASSO #3
EVENING PRAYER from HANSEL and GRETEL
FLIGHT OF THE BUMBLEBEE
JESU, JOY OF MAN’S DESIRING
JUST A CLOSER WALK
LAUDAMUS TE from GLORIA
“LITTLE” FUGUE IN G MINOR
La REJOUISSANCE from MUSIC for the ROYAL FIREWORKS
RONDO ALLA TURCA
ST. ANTHONY CHORALE
THE SAINTS HALLELUJAH

Great arrangements - lack of single parts makes them clunky to use
I bought the Flex for Two series with parts for horn and trombone as a way of playing together with my daughter. The arrangement are great, and I expect we'll be able to put them to good use. Duet music for that combination of instruments is rare, so this should get 5 stars. However - and the reason it only gets 3 stars - the PDF only comes with the full score, not individual parts. Some of the songs are 3 or 4 pages for one instrument. Managing that with both of us playing will be complicated. The score is excellent because you can see how all the parts overlap. The PDF would be event better if it had individual parts as well. That would dramatically improve the usability.
