This series comprises the most popular beginner concertos for violinists. Edited by Kurt Sassmannshaus, the internationally renowned violin teacher and co-author of the Sassmannshaus violin method, the concerto volumes form an ideal continuation of this method and can be used in parallel from volume three onwards. The editions include a solo violin part and a piano reduction for the accompanist.
String Quartet No. 1 (Inspired by Leo Tolstoy's Kreutzer Sonata)
In October 1923 the Czech Quartet invited Leos Janacek to "compose something for them". This provided the stimulus for his first string quartet. The work was inspired by Tolstoy's "Kreutzer Sonata" (which he had written influenced by Beethoven's famous violin sonata).
Janacek had also read Tolstoy's story earlier in the original Russian and already at that time it had inspired him to compose a piano trio in 1907 which was later lost.
Janacek's string quartet is a masterwork by the almost 70-year-old composer. The work sparked a creative impulse which continued with the composition of the second string quartet "Intimate Letters" in the last years of the composer's life.
