Ten super concert pieces from all over the world, capturing the vitality, variety and personality of musical cultures around the globe, all written for Clarinet and Piano with a great CD of backing tracks.
From a Cuban Havana Cha Cha and a Mexican Mucho Mariachi! to a French Riviera and a Scottish Upland Fling, discover the similarities and differences between the musical characteristics of a range of cultures and countries - a fantastic source of unusual and surprising concert pieces too! There's even a full set of chord symbols, so Guitar-playing friends can join in.
An accompanying CD full of demonstrations and backing tracks will help you capture those unique sounds and nuances, as well as providing a superb set of personal accompaniments.
This is an excellent book. it's not for beginners as the technical demands and range of the pieces need a degree of accomplishment to get the most out of them. I usually use this book after a pupil has taken Grade 5. The backing tracks and arrangements are excellent. Highly recommended. Anonymous
