Test pieces for orchestral auditions cello

Excerpts from the operatic and concert repertoire
La presente edizione dei Passi Orchestrali elaborata da Schott, contiene tutti i passaggi richiesti ad un musicista per essere ammesso in un orchestra. Al contrario di molti studi orchestrali già esistenti, questa collezione focalizza il materiale comunemente usato nelle audizioni. Questa formula permette ai giovani musicisti orchestrali la possibilità di eseguire gli esercizi necessari per le audizioni, e ai musicisti professionisti la possibilità di affrontare passaggi orchestrali di grande difficoltà. Il testo originale della musica e i tempi sono trascritti senza modifiche. Per usufruire al meglio di questi studi, consigliamo al musicista l’attento studio della partitura, unito all’ascolto del CD disponibile separatamente
