New Music This Week, 14th February 2012

This week I've been catching up on recent publications and trying to work through the long list of music which is lying around either on my computer or in a pile of paper notifications by the desk.  Still a long way to go, but I have made good progress!

Starting with piano, we have Goodbye Lenin by Yann Tiersen, The Secret Piano by Alexis Ffrench, Classical Piano Anthology Vol 2, Movie Classics 2 with CD and a revised edition of Microjazz for Absolute Beginners with CD.

For piano duet we have Gurlitt Hours of Rest and Latin for Two.

A new series - From Bach to Ravel - from De Haske covers alto sax, clarinet, oboe and flute, and contains well known pieces arranged for the instruments with CD.  Piano accompaniment separate.

Not to be outdone, Boosey & Hawkes have published a new series - West Side Story Playalong.  Some supply problems for a couple of the instruments, the ones available now are on the website.

A new title in the Jazz Ballads series, this time for flute.  Also for flute, Brass Wind has just published a version for flute in its popular series Winner Scores All (a version with CD will shortly arrive too).  And for treble recorder we have Baroque Recorder Anthology Vol 4.

For two guitars we have Guitar Dance Collection.

Leonard Bernstein's Broadway musical Peter Pan is now available for voice and piano.  Sticking with the American theme, 15 Art Songs for Low Voice is also out.

For choir, we have Kaleidoscope, the latest in the Boosey & Hawkes Concerts for Choirs series, for SSA.  And a new collection of Christopher Norton arrangements, In The Need of Prayer.

That's it for this week, will see how far I can get in my pile of new music before next week!
