During music practice, for example during a class or an exam, we need to use random notes, in order to choose the music scale the student will play.

I thought about a music dice, did some research, and saw some music dice available on the market using English music notes nomenclature, but none including the note names system commonly used in Portugal. So I decided to start working and creating my own music dice.

Already available at AvA Musical Editions website Osvaldo Lacerda's (1927 - 2011) works for Horn and Piano and for Horn Solo!

This is a awesome edition project I had the opportunity to participate, consisting in bringing to life Lacerda's manuscripts, allowing his works to be known all over the world. I've been in contact with Lacerda's family and friends that gave me interesting information that helped on the edition process and I had the pleasure to play a recital including some of his works. For now only his music for horn and piano and for horn solo is available at AvA Musical Editions, however his colossal catalogue is something that worth to discover. Lacerda writes very idiomatically for horn and you can always listen a little bit of Brazil in horn music.
