to Philippe Costarini
Most of the composers represented in this collection are not only talented musicians but also Conservatoire directors or teachers. They know better than most players the potential problems associated with each instrument as well as the needs of young pupils in order to introduce them to the contemporary repertoire.
It is the teaching ability combined with the musicianship of each composer that is a sure guarantee of success. This collection will be widely used throughout conservatoires and music schools everywhere.
