Book/CD Music from all three films arranged for wind instruments. Desirable and collectible these instrumental folios are loaded with full-color photos of scenes from all three films. They are printed on top-quality antique paper stock and the covers showcase the new “trilogy” artwork. The wind instrument books are completely compatible with each other and can be played together or as solos. Each book contains a carefully edited part that is appropriate for the Level 2-3 player and a fully orchestrated accompaniment CD. Each theme on the CD is presented as a “demo” track (which features that particular instrument) and as a “play-along” track without the solo instrument. New icons are used in the books to guide the players through the accompaniment options. A separate piano accompaniment book with CD is available for the wind series. The instrumental solo part in concert pitch is added above the piano part. The CD features live demonstration performances of various instrument tracks from the series. Titles are the twelve major themes from the blockbuster trilogy:
From The Fellowship of the Ring:
The Black Rider
From The Two Towers:
From The Return of the King:
Into the West
The Steward of Gondor
The three books for string instruments were written especially for violin, viola, and cello. Each book features a piano accompaniment and a carefully crafted removable string part complete with bowings, articulations, and keys well suited for the Level 2-3 player. The string books are completely compatible with each other and can be played together or as solos. Due to level considerations the string books are not compatible with the books in the wind series.
