ANTHOLOGY OF WURM PUBLICATIONS
Optimized for Euphonium
The 40 studies in Wurm’s German Etudes collection cover a variety of technical and lyrical skills in contrasting keys. Thoroughly Romantic in style, they challenge performers with scales, chords, and melodic sequences across the range of the instrument. In the more lyrical etudes, Wurm leaves room for individual expression, interpretation, rubato, and other nuances. Regardless of style, Wurm’s chief priority is tone quality.
The etudes appear in Wurm’s original publication order. Before each etude, a brief introduction explains its purpose and offers advice for efficient practice.
