A collection of excerpts compiled during Jack Wellbaum’s many years in the Cincinnati Symphony. The selection of contents is based on those excerpts most frequently asked for in auditions. Orchestral Excerpts for Piccolo includes well-known (and sometimes feared) piccolo solos, such as Movement 3 of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, Sousa’s The Stars and Stripes Forever, and Movement 2 from Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 8. Not only are the excerpts arranged so that page breaks coincide with page turns in the actual publication, but the expert piano reductions allow a student to understand how the solo relates to the rest of the orchestra.
