Essential Melodies is a delightful collection of repertoire pieces by famous composers. These pieces have been skilfully adapted for the violin by a number of excellent arrangers, with the emphasis on variety, musical quality and melodic interest. Various dance forms are presented in this book including the rondeau, waltz and tango. With a selection of styles to choose from you can be confident that concerts and school performances will be a success. Some of the pieces can be played entirely in the first position; others involve some position changing but none of them requires virtuoso technique.

Een prachtverzameling stukken van bekende componisten. Ze zijn speciaal bewerkt voor viool, met de nadruk op afwisseling, kwaliteit en melodievoering. Verschillende dansvormen komen aan bod, zoals het rondo, de wals en de tango; ideaalvoor concerten of voorspeelavonden. Sommige stukken zijn helemaal te spelen in eerste positie, andere vragen al enig positiespel. De pianobegeleiding is apart verkrijgbaar, maar staat ook op de bijgevoegde cd voor extra speelplezierthuis. Natuurlijk staat op de cd ook een mooie voorbeeldversie van elk stuk.

Essential Melodies ist eine reizvolle Sammlung von zwolf unvergesslichen Melodien beruhmter Komponisten, von ausgezeichneten Arrangeuren geschickt fur die Violine angepasst. Es werden verschiedene Tanzformen wie das Rondeau, der Walzer und der Tango vorgestellt. Einige Stucke beinhalten Lagenwechsel, Virtuositat wird jedoch nicht verlangt. Die Klavierbegleitungen gibt es auf der beiliegenden CD, aber auch in einem separat erhaltlichen Buch.

Essential Melodies contiene 12 brani di grandi compositori classici (Purcell, Dvorak, Albeniz, Chabrier, Massenet, ecc). Gli accompagnamenti al piano sono disponibili in due versioni: una versione incisa ed una versione cartacea (venduta separatamente).

    I really like the arrangements, and CD. There are multiple positions for these pieces, and some challenge for the intermediate violinist. It might be enhanced by fingering options, but is not hard to figure out. I enjoy playing along with the CD tracks. I am an adult learner, with 6...

    years experience on the violin.
