The composer Soren Sieg says: 'In my previous works for recorder and piano, I paid little attention to the difficulty of the pieces, because at the premieres I played the piano myself and the recorder part was performed by virtuosos such as Meng-Heng Chen, Chris Orton, Ebba-Maria Kunning or Antonio Carriho. In this collection it is exactly the opposite, I have gone through my now more than 32 African suites in search of pieces that are close to my heart and which I could arrange for solo recorder and piano in such a way that the recorder and piano part would be rather easy to play. I hope that these pieces can be played in recorder lessons by teachers and students at a fairly early stage. 

The pieces can be played on soprano or tenor recorder, the piano accompaniment for the soprano recorder version is in the score, the piano accompaniment for the tenor recorder version i in the enclosed piano part. 

I wish everyone a lot of fun with this collection, the next one is already in preparation'. Hamburg, March 2020. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
