Accompaniment for Bordogni?

Post by Backbone » Sat Aug 04, 2018 11:32 pm

Anyone know if there are any accompaniments for the Marco Bordogni exercises written and or recorded? This would be the 43 Bel Canto Studies for Tuba or Bass Trombone.

One option is the David Schwartz book/cd combination. One volume has nearly the same content as the Bordogni/Ostrander. You can probably find the remainder of the 43 studies in the other volumes. It is not very hard to transpose the cd files to match the keys of different transcriptions, although that would be even simpler if the files had been midi instead of aiff.

There is also a book of counterpoints to the bordognis. Nice if you want to play bordognis as duets.

Warning: the counterpoint voice isn't easy.

The Schwartz stuff is good. I have the "Bordogni for Bass Trombone" and it comes with a CD of piano accompaniments.

I also have the "Bordogni Accompaniments for Rochut (Folio #1)" piano sheet music. Covers Rochut #2-#20 and contains the solo staff (bass clef) as well. So my wife and I can play these together from time to time.
