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 witty puzzle: How can one melody sound like many? Its
like 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 repertory, bearing in mind the limitations of the forebear of
all wind instruments, whose sound I love. Yet I cannot fail to
notice that, though entirely conceived on the sound of recorders
playing in my mind, these canons sound equally well on other
instruments. I can imagine canon 9 on tubas or trombones, for
example, even glissandoing at times; or canon 11 on bassoons
and cellos, so charming!
The level of skill required by these pieces varies from the easy
enough for an experienced player to sight-read, like canon 10, to
those more challenging, like canon 9, which once mastered will
provide a nimble command of the difficult F major key. I hope
to have also provided through this collection an enjoyable time
for the asking.
