    OMP 125 Russell Gilmour A Clutch of Fipples

    A rhythmically challenging piece for recorder ensemble (2D, 3A, 2T, B) but not insurmountable for confident players with good counting, especially at the suggested speed of crotchet=56.This piece does require attention to detail - especially in articulation, which is carefully marked. From staccati and slurs to accents and some flutter tonguing, all parts are equally challenged and, combined with the tricky rhythms, great concentrations will be required. As always with Orpheus editions, the parts and score are well presented although on occasion the articulation slurs and dots 'collide' on the page. There are no dynamics indicated so once your ensemble has mastered the rhythms and the finer points of the articulations, there will be plenty more to consider. A fine, textural piece to challenge you with plenty of scope for private practice and something of a team-building experience for your ensemble.
