Leonardo Leo (1694 - 1744):  Sonata a Flauto solo e Basso in D minor (1)
scoring: A (Bc)

This batch of sonatas by Leo are quite original, but with a strange range. In particular, this one seems to be shifted towards high notes as if it were to be played by another size of recorder, but eventually only a treble recorder will suit.

Traditional Klezmer:  Unzer Toyrele
scoring: CCB (Harmonic Instrument ad libitum)

This piece is based on the Phrygian Dominant scale, also called Jewish Major scale. See this page and also this one for more information.

The Phrygian Dominant scale is characterised by the augmented second step between the second and the third grade: so, starting on A, as this piece does, the scale reads:

The best way to render this scale on a recorder in C is to flatten the first-octave B, partially closing the second hole of the recorder with some tape:

I used removable tape to try and find the best tuning. This especially works on recorders with wide bore, since their finger holes are bigger. After the modification, Bb sounds a little muffled, but the result is worth it. Now we can play the music faster just ignoring the flat.
