New Music This Week

A number of new books have been published over the winter. A new collection of pieces for Cello from Trinity - Cello Allsorts, and continuing the strings theme, the long awaited Time Pieces for Double Bass Vol 1 and Vol 2. Repertoire for double bass is a bit thin, and I'm always on the lookout for new pieces for the instrument, so I also have in stock Muller's Neapolitan Dance for bass.

A new series of books to help pianists with sight reading as been published by the Associated Board, by the well-known Alan Bullard. Volumes 1, 2 and 3 have been issued, with two more to follow.

Trinity have just published Sound at Sight for French Horn, a welcome addition to the collection of books for horn.

And finally, Harry James' Trumpet Concerto, a jazzy piece which Winwood Music has been wanting to publish for some time - it's now available.

A lot of prices have changed and I am gradually working through the website updating them. It's a slow job, which I only really do once a year and it takes a long, long time, so you have a good chance to get a bargain before I get all the changes done!
