Dowani International of Liechtenstein
announce the launch of their new playalong range.
The range covers most common instruments but
for the trumpet player the main interest is in the nine volumes
now available for trumpet: a five-volume trumpet and piano collection
(level: easy to intermediate) is complemented by a three-volume
trumpet and organ offering at intermediate level: the range is topped
off by single volume containing the J. Haydn Trumpet Concerto.
Dowani's claim of high quality performances and
editions is supplemented by their novel idea of providing performances
at varying tempi, so that for each track there are three
versions of the backing plus one complete performance at tempo.
The trumpet soloist on the current trumpet album range is Bolshoi
Theatre soloist Boris Schlepakov. The scores are annotated with
detailed CD index marks to make it easier for the player to find
their place or to cue the CD to a particular passage.
The volumes all retail at €19.90 (roughly
US$21 or UK£14) and contain up to nine pieces. The press release
contains many testimonials from music educators from the USA and
Europe. The website at www.dowani.com
contains more product information and an online shop. The products
are available now in Europe and from May 1st 2003 in the United
States and other markets.
