A delightful album of pieces in contrasting styles for young violinists. All of the pieces may be played in first position and provide useful practice of various aspects of technique such as reading bowing symbols, mixed phrasing, legato and staccato playing, all of which will help build the young player’s confidence.
All the pieces can be played in the first position and the music is clear and well-edited. These are excellent pieces for developing a sense of style and the writing for both instruments [including A Sketchbook for Cello] is imaginative. David Rothwell, ISM Magazine
