Gypsy Jazz sets off on an exotic tour of folk culture, concentrating on Eastern Europe. Adventurous violinists will travel as far afield as Hungary, Turkey, Russia and Romania and bring back an interesting and exciting bag of musical souvenirs. For the developing violinist, this music opens up a world of contrast and colour, shade and style. These pieces, with their flavour of gypsy/folk and cafe music, call for a flamboyant, heart-on-sleeve style of playing.
Gypsy Jazz Intermediate Level is a fantastic book, introducing styles from across Europe, with pieces for Violin with Piano Accompaniment, which have been selected, edited and arranged by Polly Waterfield and Timothy Kraemer. With accessible piano accompaniments, the seven contrasting pieces in this book are a must for all violinists.
The solo violin part is also included on a separate insert.
