Renowned pianist Lee Evans, author/composer/arranger of over 100 music books, has released his latest intermediate/upper-intermediate level book, Jazz Baroque:Vivaldi/Bach.
The work consists of 13 jazz-tinged piano solo arrangements of music from the Baroque era. Inspired by Antonio Vivaldi and J.S. Bach, selections include music from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, J.S. Bach’s organ preludes, Inventions and Sinfonias, a work by him for solo cello, and his famous Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.
Jazz Baroque:Vivaldi/Bach is now available only in an interactive digital format in SuperScore Music on the iPad.
SuperScore is a free download from the iPad App Store. Once you have SuperScore set up on your iPad, you can purchase this volume by tapping the Shopping Cart button in SuperScore. Look for the publication in the folder labelled Piano Plus, which is Evans’s publishing name.
SuperScore features a unique liquid music notation display, which means that the music can be resized at will. The app re-engraves the music on the fly to fit the iPad screen. Each score also includes Evans’s own performance, which plays back as MIDI data, using either the digital piano in SuperScore or the piano sound in your own MIDI instrument.
SuperScore includes a learning mode, and you can even practice one hand while Evans plays the other—at any tempo.
Also available in SuperScore—from the publisher Hal Leonard—is Evans’s publication A Razzle Dazzle Christmas, a set of Christmas tunes arranged in easy-to-play 5-finger patterns.
These eight pieces will delight the elementary level pianist. They include optional accompaniments for the teacher or any pianist who is slightly more advanced than elementary level.
