Scale and Interval Exercises - For tuba and other bass clef instruments

Authors: Nicolas Indermuehle and Lauri Huotarinen

"Working Zone" is the area where you make personal progress. In "Working Zone" the things you practice are not too difficult or too easy, but they are challenging enough. Regular, dedicated and focused practicing in the "Working Zone" will improve your playing skills. Find your "Working Zone" daily. Work there slowly and systematically. Be patient. Focus on practicing the things you really need to. Try always to be aware why you are doing what you are doing.

In this publication, the authors wanted to gather, combine and clearly explain, what in their opinion are the most important things to practice. The book is written with tuba in mind, but the exercises are universal: any low brass instrument, any bass clef instrument is applicable.  On-line material at http://workingzone.fennica.digital/

Einojuhani Rautavaara (1928-2016) was one of Finland's internationally most successful composers. He made his major breakthrough with the Symphony No. 7, Angel of Light, in the 1990s, but his output includes numerous classic operas, concertos, chamber music and choral works.

Over his extensive career, he progressed from Neo-Classicism to strict dodecaphony to free-tonal Neo-Romanticism, combining modernism with mystical romanticism in his later works. According to the composer, the role of the composer is to be mediator, a midwife, who helps the music become alive on its own terms; "Listen to what the music wants to tell you", he told his composition students, "sense where it wants to go".

Rautavaara rose to great international fame with the success of his Symphony No. 7, Angel of Light (1995) powered by the prize-winning recording (Helsinki Philharmonic, Segerstam, Ondine label) later the same year. Many high-profile international commissions followed, creating yet more prize-winning recordings.

To mark the 25th anniversary of the work's premiere - in its original form as the Bloomington Symphony - by the Bloomington Symphony Orchestra and conductor David Pickett, Fennica Gehrman is publishing an entirely new edition of the symphony based on all available sources, including the composer's manuscript and his markings in various printed scores.

This is a large-sized conductor score with extensive analysis of the work and its genesis.

HAL50602337 / large score / orch

Charles Ives Society Performance Edition based on the Critical Edition (2011) realized and edited by Thomas M. Brodhead.  This new performance score seeks to address every quantifiable performance problem confronting conductors and performers of the Ives Fourth Symphony. Here, for the first time, difficulties that have bedeviled interpreters of the score in the past are addressed, and the new issues unearthed in the recently published Critical Edition score are harnessed and accounted for.

From the Editor: "AMP/Hal Leonard have published my Critical Edition Performance Score to the Ives Fourth Symphony. This score matches the newly engraved set of rental parts from AMP. It's in soft cover, and at the attractive price of $75.

This edition was informed with real-world feedback I received over a five year period. From 2012-17, I spent a week each with twelve different orchestras across North America and Europe that were preparing for a weekend performance of the edition, which was rental-only at time. This allowed me to make incremental fixes, additions, and clarifications to the score and all of the parts.

I solicited feedback from conductors, musicians, orchestra librarians (!), and even stage hands. DSO Principal Librarian Robert Stiles had the very helpful suggestion of adding a checklist for orchestra librarians to the front matter of the edition, and he and I brainstormed on what the initial listing should be (it was augmented with feedback from subsequent librarians who faced different challenges with the needs of their music directors).

I hope this will be a welcome addition to your orchestra libraries."

Beethoven and Baerenreiter - a marriage made in heaven! It all started in 1996 with Symphony No. 9: Jonathan Del Mar's groundbreaking edition of this masterpiece marked the beginning of his new edition of the complete nine symphonies. They became a huge success and have been used by countless orchestras all over the world.

In the run-up to the Beethoven Year 2020, Del Mar has returned to the sources 20 years later and scrutinised them afresh. The results: the musical text has withstood the test of time. Baerenreiter's new edition now has an optimised layout and an additional Introduction by Barry Cooper. Rounding off this beautiful linen-bound volume are several pages reproduced in facsimile.

Textcritical edition edited by Christian Rudolf Riedel [S,orch] Duration: 54' Final version 1911 Of all his symphonies, Mahler gave the Fourth, his favorite and problem child, his most particular attention. "The Heavenly Life," a humoresque composed in 1892 for soprano and piano, which he already wanted to use in the final movement of the Third Symphony under the title "What the Child Tells Me," ultimately became the nucleus and final movement of the Fourth. Even after publication in 1901, Mahler kept repeatedly refining the orchestration. His maxim "not without my retouching" led to a whole series of revised reprints. It is probably no coincidence that Mahler performed especially the Fourth Symphony in his last two New York concerts in February 1911, using this opportunity to review once again the score and parts. This performance material with his "retouching" served as the main source for the new edition. Furthermore, included for the first time were corrections and annotations in conjunction with performances of the Fourth, which Mahler entered into the scores of conductors such as Mengelberg and Wickenhauser.

9790550113893 / str orch: timp, str / Dur 5

Scherzo from Op. 4 is a charming presto for string orchestra. It is based on the third movement of Sibelius's String Quartet in B-flat major, on which the composer added a double bass part. The premiere of the string orchestra version took place on 17 February 1894 in Turku, composer conducting. Reviews were enthusiastic: "Sibelius's music appeared in its most beautiful splendor and instrumental brilliance in the Presto movement, where the singing motive was carried out with charm and beauty - -, cascades of diligently and brilliantly composed scherzo-figures and melodies [give a] thoroughly delightful and frisky, lively character."

9790550114012 / str orch, timp, triangle / Dur 15

Sibelius composed the Kanteletar Rakastava texts first for male choir in 1894, he then added a string orchestra to the male choir, and finally, he made a version for mixed choir in 1898. In 1911-1912 he returned to Rakastava and arranged it for
string orchestra, timpani and triangle as op. 14. The string orchestra version shares some material with the choir versions, the string orchestra version in this publication has an elaborated texture strongly differing from the version
with choir. In his diary Sibelius writes: "Op. 14 is one of my best works! Surely!"

Both the early version (1911) and the final version (1912) are included.
