Colours of the World is a varied, swinging collection of pieces each of which has its own colour. They include not only tango, blues, tex mex and Cuban but also house, Balkan and folk. To be able to play the pieces well you will need to have some playing experience; sometimes the third position is used and vibrato is also desirable. However, these fourteen pieces are relatively easy to play and you will gain much pleasure from them. Great attention has been paid to the accompaniment on the CD - the musicians are specialists in their field, so each piece has its own original atmosphere.

Veertien speelstukken vormen in Colours of the World een prettig en afwisselend geheel. De enigszins handige violist met kennis van drie posities zal zich deze cocktail van stijlen zeker laten smaken. Diverse inspiratiebronnenvan over de hele wereld zijn gebruikt, waaronder Hongarije, Cuba, Argentinie, Amerika, Ierland en Marokko, maar ook uit verschillende periodes, bijvoorbeeld de riddertijd. De begeleidings-cd is ingespeeld door muzikanten die zijngespecialiseerd in hun eigen stijl: van stevige rock en tex-mex tot Balkanklanken en housemuziek.

Colours of the World ist eine bunte Mischung von Stucken in Stilen aus aller Welt. Dazu gehoren z.B. Tango, Blues, Tex-Mex, kubanische Musik, House u. v. m. Die Stucke erfordern ein gutes Rhythmusgefuhl und einen ausreichenden Tonumfang. Die Begleitung auf der beiliegenden CD wurde von professionellen Musikern eingespielt. Dabei wurden fur die Stilarten typische Instrumente wie z.B. Becken oder Akkordeon verwendet, so dass die Stucke alle eine eigene, ursprungliche Atmosphare ausstrahlen.

Colours of the World ("Couleurs du monde") est le recueil ideal pour tout violoniste ayant une certaine experience du jeu en premiere, deuxieme et troisieme positions, et qui souhaite partir a la decouverte de styles et d'horizons musicaux nouveaux. Jos van den Dungen s'est inspire de musiques en provenance du monde entier (Irlande, Hongrie, Etats-Unis, Cuba, Argentine, Maroc, entre autres) et de differentes epoques. Laissez-vous seduire par le superbe accompagnement sur disque compact. Du rock a la house en passant par les sonorites chaleureuses de la musique des Balkans et tex-mex, ce recueil vous propose d'excellents moments musicaux.

Colours of the World propone musiche in diversi stili musicali quali tango, blues, tex-mex, house, musiche balcaniche e folk. Il CD allegato permette di ascoltare la giusta interpretazione. Separatamente sono disponibili gli spartiti del pianoforte.

    Formidable, varié, avec juste ce qu'il faut de difficultés pour se motiver et progresser tant en justesse qu'en rythme et tout ça en faisant un tour du monde.

    These arrangements provide an experience to play in a vast variety of contemporary styling. Excellent motivator for teachers of early-intermediate students and very enjoyable for experienced violinists also! I have used the CD accompaniments for a very unique and rhythmic cocktail hour performances! The recorded accompaniments are superb! An...

    excellent investment for any student/perfomer.
