A staple in brass methods, Melodious Etudes for Trombone, Book 1 has been re-engraved, corrected by pedagogue Alan Raph, and printed with a lay-flat binding for ease of use. Additionally, Bordogni’s original piano accompaniments, written specially for the vocalises, are presented with these etudes for the first time. As a bonus, the edition now includes a CDcontaining MP3s and printable PDFs of the original piano accompaniments , performed by Rae Moses. These etudes, transcribed from the vocalises of Bordogni, have been specially prepared for use by trombonists in orderto perfect their overall technique and in particular to develop style i n the interpretation of melody.


If you have played and studied the trombone, then it is likely you are familiar with the book commonly referred to as the “Rochut” book. In 1928, Joannes Rochut edited Melodious Etudes for Trombone, published by CarlFischer Music. Rochut thoroughly selected and edited the wonderfully ly rical vocalises, composed by master vocal pedagogue Marco Bordogni, and so the study of the trombone was forever changed. After more than 80 years, Carl Fischer Music editors decided it was time to give this long-established publication a fresh new look. We asked the renowned trombonist and author Alan Raph to re-edit the book to fix errors that have existedsince its inception. It was Raph’s intent, however, to preserve the imp ortant pedagogical sequence established by Rochut, while also taking this new edition one step further. Piano accompaniments have always existedfor these delightful etudes and Mr. Raph has now made them part of this new edition. On the included CD, you will find PDF files of all of thes e piano accompaniments as well as superb MP3 recordings by pianist Rae Moses. With the inclusion of the piano accompaniments, the practice experience is greatly enhanced and the player can deepen their musical expression. This, along with painstakingly edited and re-engraved music, takesthis seminal book into the twenty-first century. Every serious teacher and student of the trombone should have this new edition as part of their repertoire. For advancing players.
