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.

Smart Music also has quality accompaniments which are easily transposable within the software program.

Now, does anyone know of where I can get a high quality recording of the accompaniments?

Here are the first 5 Bordogni Vocalises in MuseScore format.

Bord1-5.zip
(57.24 KiB) Downloaded 5 times

MuseScore offers these delights...
  • Free
  • Real music notation
  • Easily editable for tempo, key, clef, repeats, A440, etc.
  • Includes both solo and accompaniments
To avoid copyright infringements these are taken directly from 19th Century public domain printings of Bordogni Vocalises and are transcribed to match the originals as closely as possible. The numbering, key, length and solo notation often depart from the Rochut edition we are all familiar with.

I made a quickstart video to show new users how to get MuseScore and use it with these files. There are many other instructional videos on the MuseScore site as well

If you don't like the MuseScore piano sound, other piano sounds are available on the web and can be substituted. These piano accompaniments become much less robotic-sounding when appropriate pedaling is added, however I haven't edited that into these files. I leave that as a matter of personal taste for you to add ad lib.

As they are, they should be entirely suitable for practice purposes before engaging a live piano player. I imagine most trombone players have never even heard a Bordogni accompaniment before.
