20 Easy to Intermediate Pieces for String Quartet - For a successful approach to quartet playing

Editor: Eva-Maria Neumann (b. 1951)
Format: Score and Parts
Instrumentation: String Quartet

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:
  • A total of 20 easy to intermediate arrangements of pieces from Bach to Bartok, together with specifically composed ones in string-quartet friendly keys
  • Reading scores and individual parts
  • additional, individual part for violin III instead of 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 chorus.
