This 144 page book contains all of Concone's vocal studies transcribed for tuba. The songs are in comfortable keys for CC or BBb tuba. The songs work very well for F and Eb tuba—they are in the lower range for these instruments, but not too low.
These important studies are similar to the Bordogni legato études but are generally shorter. Most études in this book are one page long and can be perfected in a shorter time than the longer Bordogni studies.
To help the tubist learn to phrase and interpret music correctly there are no dynamics printed in the book. The tubist must interpret this music in the style in which it was written.
Concone Complete Solfeggi is appropriate for tubists at all levels and for instruments in all keys.

My son has just started more comprehensive lessons in Tuba with a college professor and loves the challenge this book provides. He was excited to get it and is truly enjoying working in it.
Good book. I wish Mr. Jacobs had put in text like the Grigoriev 50 Etudes book. Thats why I gave it 4 stars.
This book is more about phrasing and interpretation than it is about legato style playing. This is a good introduction to Bordogni's style etudes. High school players can use this to learn to make music (how to phrase). Best use would be with a teacher so you can compare phrasing etc. Worth getting.
This is a good book. There are only notes here.I wish the etudes were printed twice so I could see the phrasing etc. but I guess that would make it a really big book. I would have given 5 starts but for this one issue.
