Media Type : BookLevel : Beginning-IntermediateMusical Genre : Celtic/IrishSeries : Maggie´s MusicNumber of pages : 52This is music for hammered dulcimer that soothes the soul: a rich tapestry of Celtic moods for gentle, quiet contemplation. The melodious and gentle sounds of the leather-covered wooden mallets dancing across eighty strings creates a harp-like resonant sustain that brings a special beauty to the ancient melodies. Add a rich overlay of strings, the deep tonal qualities of woodwinds, traditional Celtic and early music instruments and this album will take you into the light. This collection is created especially for relaxation, meditation and massage using selections from Maggie Sansone´s A Traveler´s Dream, Ancient Noels, Mist & Stone and Dance Upon the Shore. Maggie writes: I am pleased to gather in one special collection the most contemplative melodies from my recordings. While based in the Celtic tradition, they express a universal quality, transcending borders and speaking to the highest in all of us with lightness and joy!
Media Type : BookLevel : IntermediateMusical Genre : Acoustic MusicNumber of pages : 80Historically, music composed specifically for the hammered dulcimer has been rare. Here are 56 Rizzetta original pieces, including reels, waltzes, hornpipes, jigs, rags, blues, boogie, airs, and music for meditation and healing, that explore all the depth, power, versatility, and emotion of this ancient and expressive instrument. The book includes background about the people, places, and events that inspired each composition. While some pieces require a 16/15 chromatic dulcimer, many fit a 12/11. Melody lines are in standard notation with chord symbols. Many have variations with advanced ornamentation; some have alternate arrangements for four octave chromatic dulcimers. In addition to solos, there are six ensemble arrangements, including quartets, which are useful for groups and workshop teachers. While this collection is most appropriate for intermediate and experienced players, advanced beginners will be able to play some of the tunes. The collection includes originals from the Sam Rizzetta CDs Dulcimer Boogie, Saving Trees, Trapezoid, Flowing Waters, Ocean¹s Edge, Bucks & Does, and Seven Valleys.
