The Compatible Ensemble Series allows chamber groups to play together, no matter the instrumentation or who wants to play melody, harmony, or bass. This collection contains 21 quartets for string instruments in a variety of styles from classical, to folk, to original compositions. Players get the opportunity to mix-and-match instrumentation and line played, making the instrumentation combinations almost limitless. The flexibility of these quartets makes them a must have for any string player.
In our experience as instrumental music teachers, we have found that having students play in small chamber-music groups was a very beneficial exercise to improve the students overall musicianship. A simple form of chamber music is a quartet. It is an opportunity for the student to play with other students of similar abilities. Aspects of playing such as tone quality, intonation, technique and ensemble skills can be developed during the process of studying quartets. These quartets are different in that they have many different performance options since all of the books in this series are compatible. During our experience as school music teachers, we have had students that wanted to come to the music room during lunch or after school and they just wanted to play with their friends. However, that was not possible since there is very little material available that is compatible with all of the string instruments. This book takes care of that. A student can now grab a couple of their friends no matter what string instrument they play and have hours of fun playing quartets together. Most important they will learn something in the process. The quartets have been generally placed in the book in order of difficulty and cover a range of keys that are appropriate for this ability level. Special care has been given to making sure that all parts were on a similar level of ability. Also, most of the musical markings are attached to all systems, and the point size of the music was considered for ease of reading. It is our hope that this collection will help to stimulate and enhance the musicianship of the performers. It was our pleasure to have the opportunity to put together this collection. We hope it is a useful tool for you for years to come.

    Nice variety and selection of fun pieces as well as by major composers. 48 pages and some pieces are 4 pages in length making them reasonable for performances. My group enjoyed playing these.
