Length: approx. 3¾ mins. Sounds best with the 2nd tenor and bass doubled.
Cairo is an idiosyncratic composition that will especially delight all those recorder ensembles that enjoy alternation. No less than three members of the quintet have the pleasure of plucking up and putting aside their instruments for something bigger or smaller. The piece itself has a definite oriental flair abound with long triplet and syncopated close harmony passages with much for the bass voices. Another great Pollack piece for recorder ensembles.
Cairo was published by Maurice Richmond Music Co. Inc., New York, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
