The fourteen new pieces of The Light Touch for trumpet and piano capture the energy of popular music and the fascination of its ever-changing boundaries. In two books, graded Easy to Intermediate and Intermediate Plus, with accompaniments also available as free downloadable MP3 files, the collection has been compiled and edited by noted soloist Deborah Calland, who has showcased the work of both leading composers and exciting new talents.
The contents are wide-ranging, from funk, jazz and blues to ragtime, Latin American and minimalism, with additional scope for cross-curricula study. A major resource for players and teachers, the two albums will encourage fresh and revealing encounters with popular music in its many forms, while charming audiences with the allure of 'The Light Touch'.
