String Quartets for Beginning Ensembles, Volume 2 arranged by Joseph Knaus. Quartet; String Quartet (Suzuki); Suzuki. Book. 80 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.0282S).
Comprised of works from Volumes 1, 2, and 3 of the Suzuki Violin School, which have been arranged for string quartet by violinist/arranger Joseph Knaus. With lower string parts providing melodic and rhythmic counterpoint to set off the simple melodies (which match the Suzuki Method® repertoire), these quartets are nevertheless simple enough for beginning level players ready for their first chamber music experience. String Quartets for Beginning Ensembles are sold in sets including full score and one part book per instrument. Volume 2 contents are: Chorus from Judas Maccabaeus (G.F. Handel) * Long, Long Ago (Key of G) (T.H. Bayly) * Waltz (J. Brahms) * Bourrée from Sonata in F Major for Oboe, HHA IV/18, No. 8 (G.F.
