New This Week, 23 March 2012

Let's start this week's round up with a question.  What is this gizmo? Any ideas?

If you're a brass player you might know.  Got it yet?

It's a water key spring for small brass instruments, more specifically a Yamaha one.  I try to add new products to my range regularly, but often my best ones come from customer requests (many thanks to Steve), and this is one of those. So I now have some in stock, should you be in need of one.

On to this week's sheet music.  As well as digging out some old stock and putting it in the Bargain Box on my website and on Ebay (seller vsmusic2010) I've added a pile of recent publications.  Loads more to do (Winwood, please note, I will get to yours next week!), but here's this week full list.

Boosey & Hawkes has just publisher a host of choral music:

Moving to violin, we have a new edition of Fiocco's Allegro and Seitz Student Concerto in D, both by Barenreiter.  Also by Barenreiter, Rieding's Marcia Op 44 and Rondo Op 22 no 3.  New from Theodore Presser, In Memory of Milton.

For viola, a new Henle edition of the viola sonata in C minor, and West Side Story Playalong.

For flute, we have Samuel Adler's A Bonnie Tune, and West Side Story Playalong.

Mendelssohn's Clarinet sonata in E flat is now available in Henle Edition.

A welcome addition to the bass trombone repertoire, Samuel Adler's Bravura.

For singers, there is All Time Great Duets, with CD so you can sing along with a recorded partner or a real live one!

For guitar, Fingerpicking Irish Songs, favourite Irish tunes in guitar tab.  For classical guitar, try Italian Songs, 22 italian songs from O sole mio to the national anthem in notes and tab.

For piano, Henle has published a new edition of Ravel's Sonatine, and Satie's Gymnopedies.  And for piano duet, the excellent Mike McCornick has a new publication, Pink Panther for Two with CD, so you can play a duet by yourself!

For concert band, the Dutch Test Piece The Essence of Youth is now published.  And finally, the unforgettable song "Forget You", sung by Cee Lo Green, is now available in an arrangement for concert band.
