New Music this Week, 07 February 2012

As this is Diamond Jubilee week, I thought I'd start off with the National Anthem.  If you're planning a musical event for the Diamond Jubilee, then this is what you need for your orchestra, and at a great price of £9.99!


I've been catching up on new music published recently and which I've not had time to load.  Here's a quick round-up:

Flute Globetrotters - music for flute with CD

New editions of Fiddle Time Scales 1, Fiddle Time Scales 2, and Viola Time Scales, adjusted to match the recent ABRSM syllabus changes.  OUP have also published a new book in the series - Cello Time Scales.

Play Vienna - De Haske are trying to cash in on the craze for Viennese music with this collection for accordion, violin, trumpet, clarinet, flute, horn, alto sax, cello, piano and trombone.  Some great tunes, with playalong CD.

A new opera - Wagner Dream is a contemporary addition to operatic repertoire.  Copland's Four Motets for SATB is also out now.

For advanced pianists, the Boosey & Hawkes Piano Anthology is a great buy.

Sticking with the piano, Haydn's piano sonata in C and three of Bach's Two Part Inventions are newly published by Wiener Urtext.  And if you need more encouragement to practice, the Great Book of Studies will ensure your technique is perfect!

For young string players, Octotunes is a collection of easy tunes for beginner string ensembles.

That's it for this week, hope you have escaped the snow and ice this week!
