- Five classical themes (but not as you've ever heard them before!)
- For intermediate players.
It had to be done, and yes, we did it! Are you ready to play Mozart, Beethoven, Wagner, Handel, and Grieg as you’ve never played them before?
We have: Für Elise in a cheeky swung style, Ride of the Valkyries (as a stunning smoky smooth Jazz ballad), In the hall of the mountain king (a Jazz/reggae fusion with accellerando!), Arrival of the queen of Sheba (a slushy swing), and Mozart's Turkish Rondo as a crazy swung romp!
This collection is aimed at intermediate players and in addition to the piano accompaniment part and solo instrumental part, you will find inspiring demonstration tracks (no nasty glockenspiel melody line here we might add!) with a real instrument demonstrating for you, and also minus one backing tracks (audio download code included with the book).
We’ve taken great pains with our audio tracks to give you a great quality band to play along to, as we believe that helps the soloist settle in, feel inspired and achieve their best performance. We hope that you enjoy the experience just as much as we enjoyed making this publication and audio.
Classical Capers is brought to you by the same composers as our immensely popular Christmas Jazz series. The collection is also available in Clarinet, Alto Saxophone and Flute editions.
A sample video of the sheet music can be seen above, and you can also watch our YouTube playlist of all five pieces here: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeZzm2W58OO9EyHt98eyTHtfWdSb6XV9z
Classical Capers is available in Printed (posted book) edition with audio downloads code, and also as an instant download via our Digital Editions Shop, both as a book ( https://payhip.com/b/S9okC )and also individual pieces.
