Legato Etudes for French Horn by John R. Shoemaker, pub. Alfred


Sold Out

Item Details

These studies are based on the vocalises of Giuseppe Concone, 19th century Italian Master of singing and the pianoforte.  After moving to Paris in 1837 he became famous as a teacher of the pianoforte, singing, theory and composition.  His chief title to fame rests on the composition of a series of Solfeggi which have a world-wide reputation.

Three specific problems are addressed:  1) interpretation of the legato phrase; 2) extension of the low range; and (3) familiarity with the bass (F) clef.  Key signatures, time signatures, and dynamic markings have received careful consideration in relation to these problems.

The volume contains 24 etudes.
