Soloist(s) and Band

Eighth Note Publications is a publishing leader in quality music for woodwind and brass solo/ensemble music. A natural extension of solo/ensemble repertoire is music featuring a soloist or group of soloists with concert band. This series provides the wonderful opportunity to either feature a member from within the ensemble in a solo role or to invite a guest to be featured with the band.

Some of the repertoire included in our current catalog are titles that were originally scored for soloist and piano, with the piano part greatly expanded for full wind ensemble or symphonic winds. Other titles are new editions of existing music for soloist(s) and band from the turn of the 20th century. The instrumentation has been modernized for today's wind groups (F Horns rather than E-flat, a full compliment of saxophone parts, etc). Many of these turn of the century works were full of errors, missing bars and often never sold with a full conductor score.

We hope that this series appeals to as wide a range of soloists and bands as possible. The pieces range in difficulty for both the soloist and the accompanying ensemble to provide options for many situations:

professional level soloist with a professional/college quality band professional level soloist with a high school band high school level soloist with a junior high/high school band
