The Schantl Studies have long been recognized as superlative etudes in attaining musical style and expression through a melodic approach to solo performance. The selected studies in this book are adapted to unison and harmonized performance by all brass instruments used in a variety of instrumental combinations.
The book is a unique one. The left hand page gives the studies as they are written, tuneful, providing variety in keys, tempos, and dynamic variation. The right hand page provides a harmony part to go with each one, treated melodically with fully annotated phrase markings in each part. The music is a challenge to the musician in achieving status in artistic performance.
If you follow qPress at all you know that I love study materials that include multiple parts in harmony. They give a more complete picture to a student and give the opportunity for student/teacher performance in lessons and student ensemble performance in a group setting.
