Russian Fiddle Tunes for Two Violins

By Deborah Greenblatt

Violin Duet 2 violins
Arranged by Deborah Greenblatt. Tunes for Two. Russian Folk. Tune book. Standard Notation. 47 pages. Published by Greenblatt & Seay (GS.BVN2RUFTFTV).


With Standard Notation. Russian Folk. 8.5 x 11 inches.

31 traditional Russian tunes arranged for two instruments, with chords for back-up musicians included. Program notes and a source list are included.

Each of the "Fiddle Tunes for Two" collections consists of individual spiral-bound books presented in score form with melody on the top line and harmony beneath. Individual books are available for Violins, Violas, Cellos, Basses, and Mandolins. The tunes in each book of each series are in the same keys and include guitar chords. For instance, a violinist and a cellist could play a wedding together if they each had the appropriate "Wedding Fiddling for Two" book. These books work particularly well for private lessons where teacher and student can take turns playing lead and harmony parts.

  • September 18, 2011 This is a great book for an intermediate player!!

    This book has a wonderful variety of tunes for an intermediate player. Some are lively dance tunes, some are slower and more melancholy. The different keys and time signatures add interest too. The tunes are mostly playable in position 1 with the odd shift needed to position 2, 3 or...

    4. I am finding the tunes enough of a challenge but achievable for my level and so much fun to play. The 1st violin part sounds good on it's own but adding the second part makes the tunes so much richer. The book is easy to use and cheap - I love this book!!
