Born in Erfurt, the composer Edward Mollenhauer (1827-1914) achieved success in America as a soloist and teacher. His best-known pieces for young violinists areThe Infant PaganiniandThe Boy Paganini.
Both appear here in their original version for violin and piano and, for the first time, in a transcription for cello and piano by Christoph Sassmannshaus.

The Mollenhauer fantasiaThe Infant Paganiniis a charming introduction to early virtuoso techniques. It calls for bowing techniques such as detache, legato, spiccato and arpeggios over three strings. Players are also expected to play harmonics and pizzicato.

This showpiece (BA 10691) can be accomplished by young violinists who can play in first to third position and who are nearing completion of the Sassmannshaus Early Start on the Violin, volume 4.

It (BA 10693) can be equally mastered by young cello students who are working with volume 4 of the SassmannshausEarly Start on the Celloand can manage first to fourth position.

The Boy Paganiniis an impressive concert piece which is more demanding. Its two movements call for changes of metre, harmonics and pizzicato. Other challenges include chords on all four strings and simple passages in octaves.

On the violin (BA 10692), the technical requirements call for first to fifth position whereas on the cello (BA 10694), the student must be able to play in first to fourth position.

Both violinists and cellists should have completed volume 4 ofEarly Start on the ViolinandEarly Start on the Cellorespectively in order to master this work.

* Popular recital pieces for young violinists and cellists
* Both works form an ideal continuation of the SassmannshausEarly Startmethods
* Pieces originally scored for violin now also available for the first time for cello
