New Music This Week, 01/06/11

Lots of new music on the website this week, here are the highlights, most are published by Schott as I'm currently working through their new music catalogue.

Tempo Tempo - a collection of fast tempo pieces for the intermediate pianist
Beethoven's 5th - the fifth symphony, arranged for solo piano
Joplin Waltzes - Joplin's little known waltzes for piano
Fiori Teneri - a piece for accordion by Czech composer Laburda

Moving away from the keyboard, Argentinian Tango and Folk Tunes for violin comes with CD. The French Fiddler is the latest in the the Fiddler series from Boosey & Hawkes.
More for violin: Senfter's Five Pieces, Penderecki's Tanz and Eotvos Seven, which was written as a memorial to the Columbia astronauts. Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance march is also available in a new arrangement for violin and piano.

In violin studies, there is a new edition of Kreutze's 42 etudes, and a new edition of Rode's 24 Caprices, which also has a version for smaller hands.

For viola, Rode's 24 Caprices are also available in a new edition, while I have also added Dancla's 36 melodious and easy studies, Dont's Studies and Knox's Viola Spaces.

For other instruments, we have Discovering Rock Drums, a guide to all the rock styles since the 1960s, Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance march arranged for trumpet, and Scottish Folk Tunes arranged for guitar (tab and notation).

All in all, lots of new material, I have a long list of new music still to work through so watch this space or follow me on Twitter.
