Review of Selected Advanced Solo Literature for Wind Instruments

November 17, 2011 / By: Jessica Gilbertson

The purpose of this study was to compile quality, standard solo literature for each wind instrument. I surveyed experts on each instrument to locate literature and one solo for each wind instrument will be reviewed in the style of the GIA series, Teaching Music Through Performance in Band. The review will include historical information, technical and stylistic considerations, harmony, and form. The intended use of the study is to use the list and reviews to help select quality solo literature to study at the high school level for students in my program.
