Most Trumpet, Euphonium, Saxhorn, Trombone and Tuba teachers remain very attached to the famous Great Comprehensive Method for Cornet à Piston and Saxhorn by Jean-Baptiste Alban (1825-1889), who was the first to want to make his instrument a true solo instrument. His studies are one of the recipes for instilling "play-just".
FLEX Editions proposes the 14 characteristic studies resulting from the ARBAN method, but revisited, adapted and modernized by Claude Egéa.
They spare a few poses and breaths to work these Pieces with rigor and ... pleasure.
The accompanying CDs allow you to play with a very current accompaniment, and at different tempos: slower work tempo and original tempo.
We would be curious to know what Jean-Baptiste Arban would think of this version. Our common ambition is to give a second youth to the famous studies characteristic of the famous method.
