Following the success of 'Irish Fiddle Solos' and 'English Fiddle Tunes', Pete Cooper's new book contains a rich selection of tunes from many Eastern European countries including Poland, Ukraine, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Bulgaria, and Macedonia, and pieces from the Klezmer tradition. There are 80 tunes in a variety of styles: mazurkas, polkas, kolomyikas, freylekhs, horas, csárdás, legenyes, sîrbas, rucenitsas, kopanitsas, etc. The material is wide-ranging in complexity, including very simple pieces as well as many more challenging tunes requiring intermediate to advanced technique. The introduction provides explanations of rhythms, scales, modes, and notes on the individual tunes.As with the other books in the series, a CD with all the pieces performed by Pete Cooper accompanies the collection, which is suitable for grade 3 and above.

Little to none....
The Fiddle played by Pete Cooper is strictly "classical" ! This guy is not a Folk Fiddler at all. Hes a straight Musician and thats the way he approaches everything...hence he never finds the "essence" of the tune behind the Notes...its all straight by the books for him. Eastern European traditional Music is not like that at all.
