The highly regarded early music specialist and violinist, Walter Reiter, presents the first in a new series of four volumes dedicated to violin music from the Baroque period. Featuring 38 beautiful pieces scored for violin and keyboard accompaniment, this collection includes pieces by well-known figures such as Bach, Handel and Purcell, as well as lesser-known and rarely available works from a range of other composers. Suitable for students of ca. 1-2 years of playing experience, this book includes composer biographies and teaching notes on each piece, together with a CD recording of all works performed by Walter Reiter and Robin Bigwood. "Each of these miniature masterpieces constitutes not just useful material for beginners to practice, but important stepping stones for progressing to the Romantic repertoire and beyond...Schott's clear, spacious, larger-than-usual print on buff paper will attract young players, who lively, small fingers could try these gems for concerts and competitions. Reiter's love for this era is palpable in his generous and informative introduction. Helpful practice notes and background on each piece and its composer, as well as a CD/MP3 disc containing full versions and play-along tracks complete this appealing package."--Strings magazine.

  • December 11, 2016 Great Baroque Starter Book!

    I love this book! Been teaching myself for 18 months and could not find much literature taking me from all the method book 1's into a baroque collection not too hard for me to jump into. The Schott "Baroque Violin Anthology" Book 1 (edited by Walter Reiter) is perfect...

    ! It starts easy and each piece gets a little more challenging, all of it is baroque and a lot of fun. I've been playing the book for a month now, and finally worked my way through all the pieces, though it will take me months or more continued practice to get them to sound good. This is the perfect book for me!The included CD is an excellent supplement, allowing me to hear the rhythms that I am still only learning how to read (and even more slowly learning how to count).I also bought Book 2 and look forward to moving into it in a few months. Perhaps after that I will be much better qualified to go straight into full-scale baroque works by composers such as Corelli, Bach, Telemann, Purcell, etc.
