My First Concert for ClarinetIncludes CD
Arranged by Rudolf Mauz
From the Publisher
To every pupil, the first concert is a special experience. The period of intensive preparation, the mixture of trepidation and joyful anticipation, the concentration during the performance, the applause of the audience and the pride after the successful performance. Such impressions will all stick in the pupil's mind and quite often influence his or her entire future development. The choice of the 'right' performance piece is of vital importance: It should be neither too long nor too short, make a strong impression and give great pleasure in practising.
The edition Mein erstes Konzert contains 23 easy pieces for clarinet and piano for music lessons and first auditions. The selection of the original works invites the performer on a trip through various music epochs – starting from classical via Romantic to contemporary music. Further highlights are pieces from the areas of klezmer, jazz, rock and pop music.
Most pieces can be played after 1-2 years of music lessons. The first pieces in this volume are exclusively written in the low register – without overblowing.
Approaching the works is made easier by the enclosed CD which contains all pieces as a demo version and as a play-along version with just piano accompaniment.
