Method for Baroque Oboe. Guillermo Beltrán (Spanish Edition)
Want to learn how to play the baroque oboe but don’t know where to start?
Are you a teacher and do not know what pieces to put when you teach baroque oboe because any score, however easy it may be, has difficulty solving for someone who starts playing?
The “Method for Baroque Oboe” is a manual designed for amateurs, self-taught musicians or professionals who teach baroque oboe.
It is a method of progressive learning, which starts from scratch, with exercises designed to learn to play the baroque oboe without leaving loose ends and which uses pieces of both treatises and compilations of music written in the s. XVIII.
The treatises of the time are useful if you already know how to play the baroque oboe, because they provide information about style, articulations, etc. but until now there was none that taught to play from the beginning.
Through the exercises and the original pieces selected (some adapted so that they can be played without knowing “all the notes”), the oboist will play all the possible fingerings, numerous ornamental combinations and work on the main forms that make up the Suite.
