I have just published a collection of 12 renaissance duets from Italian author Gioseffo Zarlino. These duets where adapted to modern melodic instruments and for each of them you will find:
Modern Adaptations in C, Bb, Eb and Bass clef.
The modern adaptation was made with the melodica in mind: almost all the ranges of the 12 duets are already within the limits of a standard 32-keys melodica, I had to make a very few octave transpositions when needed.
You can play these duets with another melodica or, thanks to the Bb, Eb and bass clef versions, with many different instruments: recorders, flutes, saxes, clarinets, cellos, etc.
And this is the link to the amazon.com page (you might have to switch to your local amazon page to order).

Congratulations on your latest, gl!May 7, 2019 at 1:13 pm #10814Daren BanarsëKeymaster
How about recording a series of youtube videos to go with this? It could work to promote the book, and you could link to the book from the videos?May 8, 2019 at 9:43 am #10815
Thank you Alan!
Daren, that’s definitely something I am going to do. The idea is to record duets between melodica (or recorder) and other modern instruments…
I have already tried to involve Suzuki in this project, without success :/ I would love to use a W37, which I think would be perfect for this kind of music, but so far I haven’t been able to have a feedback from them.
Maybe they’re watching this forum or some of the members have a direct contact with them?

That’s a great idea.
I now have Zarlino’s “Duets for melodic instruments” in hand. It’s a lovely edition with generous full sized (8X11″) sheets for the music stand, suitable for spiral binding at your local copy center or office supply store if that’s desired.May 10, 2019 at 10:44 pm #10822Jerry BallardParticipant
Just received my copy. We’ll try it out for Accordina/Violin and report back.May 12, 2019 at 10:23 pm #10824
Thank you Alan, thank you Jerry.
Let me know if there’s something to adjust/modify.
