New transcription: Passacaglia improvisation (Warsaw 2014)

Here’s a new transcription I made yesterday of a passacaglia improvisation from a concert in Warsaw in 2014. Music notation is synced with the video below. On this piece I’m playing a stunning consort tenor recorder by Bob Marvin (1941–2018) (just like this one). I’ve dedicated the transcription to him.

I recommend to view the full version here: it allows you to transpose the score, to slow down the music, loop sections, and see a visual keyboard, etc.

A Short Bio

Recorder Player & Improviser

Hi there. I’m Vicente Parrilla, a recorder player, improviser & educator. It’s nice to meet you. I’m one of a small group of Early Music performers fully focused on improvisation, and that’s why —I guess— I’ve been called a rara avis within 
this field. “Mr. Parrilla and company go all out.”The New York Times. @vicenteparrilla.
