Easy Classical Collection
The second publication in the new series "Mix & Match for Strings” will be “Easy Classical Collection”
The Mix & Match for Strings makes interplay of strings in all imaginable instrumentations possible. The smallest instrumentation is that of 4 solo strings up to a large string orchestra with addition of double bass, piano and percussion. In the score 4 obligate parts are indicated, each of which can be played by violin, viola or cello. This means that the pieces can be played in any imaginable combination of string instruments. Apart from the 4 obligate parts it is possible to expand the ensemble by 3 additional parts that can be played “ad libitum”: double bass, percussion and piano. Furthermore, the obligate parts can be played by multiple instruments to expand the quartet into a larger string ensemble. The set contains 15 individual parts in which all 4 obligate parts are written for each different instrument (violin, viola, cello), supplemented with the 3 additional parts (double bass, piano, percussion).
The Classical Collection is a collection of arrangements of famous classical themes from the 17th to 19th century. The parts are attractively written for the diff erent instruments and include fingerings and bow strokes.
