Excerpts from the Operatic and Concert Repertoire

This is a wonderful collection of orchestral audition pieces, perfectly suited for students and classical players, whether you are auditioning for college, a select orchestra, or your local community orchestra.

It features common audition passages from traditional pieces, as well as solo excerpts, for a complete approach - since (as stated in the preface) "an orchestral musican is expected to know and to have mastered not only the solo literature of his instrument but especially the opera and concert repertoire as well."

Since it covers both (solo and ensemble) aspects so well, this book can also serve as an excellent practice tool for musical training, as well - a convenient single book focusing on intricate and difficult passages and solos from popular orchestral arrangements. An excellent reference book to have in your collection! 62 pages.
