HOW IS THE SONG BOOK
The Song-book of Jean-Christian MICHEL is a luxurious album of 40 coated paper pages, with a hardback four-color process cover. 30 pages of scores for piano, organ, or synthesizer, illustrated with 10 other big pages of texts and photos.
The transcriptions for B flat clarinet is published on 10 additional separate pages, so that the clarinettist can read comfortably his part without having to deal with the shoulder of the organist or the pianist.
JEAN-CHRISTIAN MICHEL's recordings were realized with a B flat clarinet. However we adopted in the booklet a scoring in C, thus favouring piano or organ accompaniment reading or arrangement for other instuments such as the flute.
The organ part has been partly "contracted" for piano, as accuratly as possible without becoming of an insurmountable difficulty. As far as possible, the whole melody is present in it.
Bb clarinet scores are included with the Song Book, allowing the clarinet player to read their part immediately, without having to transpose. Our musician friend will have the opportunity to read his clarinet score directly on his own music stand, accompanied by his pianist or organist, who, too, will have nothing to transpose.
MIDI files to listen to, to download or to edit into scores. Detailed explanations on MIDI music, MIDI files etc.
