New Sheet Music this week, 10 May 2013

It's not often a new accordion tutor is published, so when it happens it deserves top billing! This is Accordion Basics from Voggenreiter, with CD like many tutors these days. It covers all the basics from holding the tentacled beast, to reading notation.  £9.99
  
Another unusual publication is an arrangement of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concertos no 2 and 3 for two pianos.  This is taking the piano duet a little bit  further, if you're a keen pianist and have a like-minded friend.

Sticking with the piano theme, but this time for traditional piano duet, we have Brian Chapple's Home and Dry.

For acoustic guitarists, we have Beginning Jazz Guitar and Beginning Rock Guitar, both of which come with CD and are published by Alfred. Another Jazz Guitar tutor is newly revised, Jazz Guitar Volume 1 by Jamey Aebersold and comes with CD.

A new series from Schott contains well known classical tunes arranged for various instruments with piano.  Newly published are the arrangements for cello, clarinet, flute, and violin.

Another new series from Schott is Easy Concert Pieces.  The first is Easy Concert Pieces for Violin Volume 1, a large collection of simple music, with CD.  Likewise we have the first volume of Easy Concert Pieces for Guitar, also with CD.  Both are £12.99.

Barenreiter also has a new series of Concert Pieces for strings.  Vivaldi's violin concerto in G Op 3/3 for violin, and Rieding's Concerto in B Minor Op 35, transposed to E minor for viola, and transposed to D minor for cello, to make it easier to play. 

That's the week's highlights, there are more new items on the website, with music added every day as usual.
