Carolan's Concerto

Books and CDs | Flute (or Violin or Oboe) and Keyboard with optional Cello (or Bassoon)

Publisher: Schott Music
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
The latest addition to the fast-growing 'Baroque Around the World' series is an Irish album, consisting of fifteen haunting melodies by the legendary 18th-century Irish harpist Turlough O'Carolan. The selection, of easy to intermediate standard, has been made by Patrick Steinbach; the pieces range in style from the Corelli-influenced 'Carolan's Concerto', through the rumbustious 'Carolan's quarrel with the landlady', to the composer's moving final air, 'Carolan's dream'. Arrangements, for flute (violin, oboe) and keyboard, with optional cello or bassoon, are by Jeremy Barlow, who has edited three other volumes in 'Baroque Around the World', of English, French and Swedish music.

      Dublin GB
      Reasonable keyboard arrangements ( ie not too simplistic - not just repeating the melody)

      This collection allows to play Irish baroque music with violin, cello and piano. It is also possible to leave the piano or cello out- I use it to play violin-cello duets; fun for both, although the violin has the main melody. I love the piece 'Carolan's dream'!
