    Fo(u)r Strings, v.1 - Easy to Intermediate Pieces (Neumann) [score & parts]

    Making music in a quartet uniquely nurtures young string players' musical development, ensemble playing, listening to each other, and intonation. So, what could be more obvious than introducing the scoring of this genre, often referred to as chamber music's supreme discipline, as early as possible. Indeed, composers have all along advised the classical string quartet's outstanding compositions, but they are hardly easy to play for beginners. Here, with the present collection, is where Eva-Maria Neumann comes in. The two volumes include:

    •  Volume 1 - 12 easy to intermediate arrangements of pieces composed in string-quartet friendly keys
    •  Volume 2 - 8 easy to intermediate arrangements of pieces composed in string-quartet friendly keys
    •  Score and individual parts
    •  Violin III substitute part for viola
    •  Tips on warming up, intonation, bowing, fingering, tempos, dynamics, and playing musically.
    •  Specific instructions for the individual pieces.
    •  Lists of supplementary original literature
    •  The pieces are also effective as scored for string orchestra.
