These versatile quartets are written so that
they can be performed by any combination of four string instruments. Arranged by
prominent string pedagogue Doris Gazda, these pieces will sound full and
satisfying with only four players all the way up to a full string orchestra. The
selection of music in this collection covers a wide variety of musical styles
that will provide hours of enjoyment and performance options. Progressively
organized by level of difficulty as the performers advance in their skills,
these quartets are a welcome addition to the repertoire of all string
players. Parts sold separately.
Contents include: America, Oh! Susanna, The Wabash Cannonball, Home on the Range, Musette, Viennese Refrain, Chanson Triste and many more.
