Welcome to the Basilisk Edition!…

...the small sheet music publishing house from Basel, which specializes especially in recorder music and music for viola da gamba. However, most of our sheet music is also suitable for other melodic instruments, broken consorts and vocal ensembles. Our catalog includes works with new music by contemporary composers as well as early music.

News from the Basilisk Edition:

 

 

 

 

In the British Library and the Bibliothèque nationale de France we came across 3 hidden treasures from the 18th century: 6 simple suites for two treble recorders (or other instruments) by the today unknown baroque composer Mr. Voyenne have turned up. And the equally unknown Frenchman Clair-Nicolas Roget leaves behind two collections of duo sonatas.

Raphael B. Meyer delivers new repertoire for trios: he looked for the most beautiful Irish and Scottish melodies of the 16th - 20th centuries and arranged them for recorder trio (S/T/Bb), modern strings (Vl/Va/Vc) or gamba ensemble (D/A/Bb) or mixed trio.

Thanks to the individual recordings of all parts, his “Three Quartets” are also suitable for ensembles that have not had any contact with contemporary music before and would like to immerse themselves in the world of sound of the well-known recorder player Linde:

Flute dose:

Des Klanges Süssigkeit zeigt schon der Flöten-nahme.

die dient zur Courtoisie bey Sternen voller Nacht.

Sie ists die offt bewegt, manch angenehme Dame

wann ihr ein Ständgen wird bey stiller ruh gebracht

das sie des sanfften Betts, sich offt wohl gar entziehet

und zu dem süssen thon, hin an das Fenster fliehet.

Johann Christoph Weigel (1661 – 1726)
