Mike Cornick: On the Right Track Level 1
Arcangelo Corelli’s Violin Sonatas Op. 5 are among those works in violin literature that mark a new epoch, and until this day they have been part of the standard repertory of every violinist. Therefore it is all the more astonishing that there had not been any Urtext edition of these important works for a long time. This gap is filled by a new two-volume edition of the Wiener Urtext edition. The text is based on the first edition which Corelli himself supervised. This edition includes the ornaments for sonatas nos. 1-6, published by Roger in Amsterdam in 1710 as well as Geminiani’s ornaments for Sonata no. 9. The notes on performance practice by Baroque specialist Reinhard Goebel from Cologne are useful suggestions for an appropriate interpretation.
(...) We end with a happier selection from Mike Cornick's On the Right Track series. Aimed at the intermediate player, these original jazz pieces need to be mastered confidently before attempting to play with the accompanying CD which features bass and drums. The pieces cover a variety of styles - jazz, blues, on-beat and Latin - and directions relating to the quaver rhythms used (swung or even) are marked on the score. Although each piece works perfectly well without the CD, it was much improved by the addition of bass and drums, and gave a good idea of what playing in a real jazz trio might be like. Particular favourites were Sam's Blues, Valse (watch the misprint on page 8 bar 39 - the score writes Ab in the left hand, but an A# is played on the accompanying CD), and Minimal Blues.

- Praxisnähe ist hierbei vor allem durch die beigefügte CD gegeben, welche die Möglichkeit bietet, eine Triofassung gemeinsam mit zwei professionellen Musikern (Bass, Schlagzeug) zu spielen. Dennoch sind alle Arrangements ohne CD für Klavier spielbar.
