Saxophone study material that is aimed at musical expression and sound, instead of virtuosity is always in short supply. Most existing study books offer too little opportunity to apply the learned technique for its actual purpose - making music. These New Concert Studies meet the demand for teaching the art of making music. The book contains fifteen studies that put emphasis on interpretation and performance. The pieces have been written by a number of leading composers and their various approaches make practising these studies a good way to widen your musical horizons. The books comes with a demo CD featuring Nobuya Sugawa showing exactly how it should be done.
