Duos in Canon
for recorders
by
Alberto Gomez Gomez

Foreword
Canons are fascinating little pieces of music. They keep us
spellbound, like a warmly crackling fire, sometimes gripping
our ears by their sheer beauty, sometimes teasing our minds with
their paradoxical spell: How can one melody sound like many?
Is it magic? No! As with all puzzles in life, if we keep
searching for the answer we shall eventually find it. Till then,
canons will go on being the closest thing to magic in music.
Judging by the small amount of them ever written, one might
conclude they are many times more difficult to compose than
any other kind of music. This little collection here tries to add to
their numbers, bearing in mind the limitations of the forebear of
all wind instruments, whose sound I love. Of course, other
instruments may be brought in. I can imagine canon 9 on tubas
or trombones, for example, even glissandoing at times; or canon
11 on bassoons and cellos, so charming!
As for recorders, shrill notes have been avoided in this
collection. The level of skill required goes from the easy enough
for an experienced player to sight-read, like canon 10, to those
more challenging, which once mastered will provide a nimble
command of difficult fingerings. May these canons also provide
an enjoyable time for the asking.
