New this Week, 11 April 2011

The Associated Board has finally published the first two volumes of their revised Aural Training in Practice series, Grades 1-3 and Grades 4-5. Each comes with two CDs for practice. Don't hold your breath for the books for grades 6-8, I think they're a long way off yet.

The Microjazz Collection for Piano has also been revamped by Boosey & Hawkes, Book 1 and Book 3 are available now with CD backing tracks, though the original music only books are still on sale. Book 2, however, has now been withdrawn and replaced by a new edition, also with CD. As I sold my last copy of the old edition last week, the new Book 2 is now in stock.

New Music This Week, 01/04/11

The latest in the Pure Solo series, The Green Book, has just been published. Book and CD for clarinet, flute, alto sax and trumpet.

Not new publications, but new to the website are Techniques of Oboe Playing and Techniques of Flute Playing. These books are designed for the advanced player, with a rather hefty price tag!

For cello, we have Saint-Saens' original Suite in D Minor for cello.

And for piano, Stainer & Bell have just published a revised and fully fingered edition of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor.

Those are the highlights for this week, I do add to the website and stock every single day, so there are plenty more pieces of music available. If you can't find what you're looking for, just drop me a line at:
