French saxophonist, Jean-Marie Londeix (b. 1932) graduated from Paris Conservatoire with a First Prize and a Prize of Honour. As a fantastic all-around musician, he has a vast experience which makes his study books, including Nouvelles Études Variées, very well-informed.
His career has taken him all over the world and many composers have written works specially for him. As an accomplished teacher of other famous saxophonists, he has deduced where the gaps in studies for the instrument are, composing six significant books of the kind. Nouvelles Études Variées contains a variety of studies in all keys, based on pre-composed exercises by preceding composers. The Saxophone is exploited to its full potential, with Londeix including focus on extreme high notes, articulation, dynamics, tempo, phrasing, ornamentation, accidentals, range, rhythms and finger work, among other aspects. For all advanced saxophonists, Nouvelles Études Variées, compiled by renowned contemporary saxophonist Jean-Marie Londeix, is an essential guide and aid to progression of technique and musicality on the instrument.
