Edition Musicus is now a part of Ensemble Publications.
In the spring of 2015, Ensemble Publications acquired the publishing company Edition Musicus, formerly of Botsford/Fairfield/Stamford Connecticut. The transition is largely complete, but there remain items still to be "discovered," catalogued and made available once again. A complete catalog is now available to browse or to download in Excel format. These are continuously being updated and expanded as more items are located and catalogued. A spreadsheet detailing catalog updates is now available here. If you do not see an item but know it to be Edition Musicus, please contact us about its availability.

Concerto for Trombone
by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
Edited by Dr. Timothy Hutchens
for Trombone & Piano
Romantic (1878). Revised and corrected 2018 edition by Dr. Timothy Hutchens features an urtext approach, with all the editorial additions that have crept into this work over the years removed. The solo part is how Rimsky-Korsakov intended it to be, free of octave displacements, altered phrases and other modifications. Equally important, this edition also features a new piano part that is both easier to play and, as a reduction, conforms more closely to the original band score. Includes Forward by Douglas Yeo and Editor's Notes by Dr. Hutchens. Solo part in bass clef throughout, and is nicely laid out over six pages with easy page turns. Both parts feature rehearsal markings to coordinate with earlier editions.

Limited Range Etudes
by Brittany Hendricks
a Trumpet Study Book
This is not a beginning trumpet book. Though the exercises in these fourteen studies never ascend beyond the top line of the treble staff, they are designed for college students and professional players to:
• Develop skill on E-flat or piccolo trumpet apart from the canon of solo and orchestral repertoire;
• Perfect the low register of the B-flat trumpet, including the use of the third valve; or
• Improve technically while in the midst of an embouchure change, braces, or other situation that makes the high register prohibitive. -the author

Five Pieces for Bass Trombone
by Nelson Riddle
for Bass Trombone & Brass Quartet
for Bass Trombone & Piano
Now available in an edition for bass trombone & piano!
Five Pieces was written by one of the pre-eminent American composers of the 20th Century. Riddle has composed or arranged for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Judy Garland, Dean Martin, Peggy Lee, Johnny Mathis, Rosemary Clooney, Keely Smith and Linda Ronstadt. He was also the composer of a number of popular television and movie themes, including those of Barnaby Jones; Batman; The Bob Newhart Show; Emergency; Oceans 11; Robin and the 7 Hoods; Route 66; and more.
In the late 1960's, in the midst of his busy career, Riddle was approached by Dick Noel to compose a solo work for bass trombone for use on the LP record album Practice Makes Perfect, an early music-minus-one type project. On the LP, the work was performed by none other than George Roberts, "Mr Bass Trombone" himself, backed by the Academy Brass quartet. One of the earliest works written specifically for the bass trombone, Five Pieces has become a legend in the bass trombone world. This long out-of-print "lost" chart is now available in a clean modern edition, free of the numerous errors and omissions of the original. The editor has also included performance advice (tempos, styles, et cetera) lacking in the original scores, so that today's players might better understand the composer's intentions and also better emulate the style of Roberts. All advice is parenthetical, and may be ignored as desired.
Includes full score and parts for solo bass trombone, 2 trumpets, horn and tuba.

by Manny Albam
for 12-Part Trombone Choir
Geological Survey was composed for Emory Remington and the Eastman Trombone Choir in the 1960’s. It uses stylistic elements from the rock and jazz idioms, elements that were not typically found in the traditional “legit” music of the time. Remington embraced the work in accordance with his belief that his students should be capable of meeting every type of performance demand. Ensemble Publications, in cooperation with the Albam estate, is proud to make Geological Survey available for sale for the first time ever. This newly engraved legal edition corrects numerous errors found in the many multi-generational photocopies that have survived the 40+ years since its first performance. For 12 trombones (9 tenors and 3 basses) in three equal four-part choirs. Full score & parts.

Low Range Studies
by Vladislav Blazhevich
Low Range Studies for Trombone is a subset of etudes from the famous School for Trombone in Clefs (aka "Clef Studies"). They have been selected, transposed, edited and annotated by Chicago Symphony Orchestra bass trombonist Charles Vernon. Mr. Vernon has selected 60 of his favorite studies to help tenor trombonists with low range development, and to provide bass trombone players with some extra "bread and butter range" etudes.
Mr. Vernon believes it is important for tenor trombonists to maintain this vulnerable register on a daily basis. Second trombone and bass trombone players constantly play in this register in ensembles. Tenor trombonists who don't work in the middle/low register will have many difficulties playing these studies. This register is a primary building block to producing a free, open and easy sound over the entire range of the instrument. 59 pages.
