New Music This Week, 05/02/11
If you're keen on the theory of music, compose your own or are studying music at an advanced level, this new publication may be for you. Behind Bars has been years in preparation and as a result comes with a hefty price tag. It may be one for libraries and universities rather than the average music lover!
The ABRSM Theory Exams and Answers have now been published; they are available in the Theory section of the website.
The viola is an often neglected instrument, so a new sonatina is to be welcomed.
Himalayan Suite for flute and piano is another new publication, and comes adorned with a picture of one of my favourite flowers, the Himalayan Poppy.
For student Clarinettists, I Hate Crossing the Break! is sure to be a welcome collection of studies by prolific composer Paul Harris.
Taylor-Made is a collection of pieces for cello which help cellists to learn the different positions, and comes with CD.
Horn Warm Ups is a new collection of exercises for French Horn, tested by the horn section of Opera North!
For oboe, we have an arrangement of Gounod's Serenade.
As always, if you can't find what you're looking for on the website, just drop a line to: firstname.lastname@example.org If it's in print, we'll find it!
