21 Pieces for Violin with Guitar (Selections from Suzuki Violin School Volumes 1, 2 and 3 for Violin with Guitar Accompaniment). Composed by Thomas Heck. For Violin. Duet or Duo; String Ensemble (Suzuki); Suzuki. Book. 40 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.0295S).
Scored by Thomas F. Heck for solo violin with classical guitar accompaniment, this collection includes pieces from Volumes 1-3 of the Suzuki Violin School. Heck, a guitarist and Suzuki parent, intended the arrangements to serve as interesting alternative accompaniments to the Violin School repertoire. The contrapuntal interest and enriched timbral possibilities of the violin-with-guitar combination result in unusually appealing chamber music performance pieces suited for young musicians. The intermediate to advanced level classical guitar notation is supplemented by chord symbols to enable non-classically trained guitarists to accompany the violin line.
