Easy music for string groups. Playstrings provides an enjoyable and varied repertoire for young string orchestras, carefully structured in two levels. The ‘Easy’ level does not normally exceed Grade 2 in difficulty with most parts playable in first position, while the ‘Moderately Easy’ level includes some parts of around Grade 3 standard. At easy level, alternative parts are provided so that the absence of viola or a double bass does not prevent the piece from being performed. Available in score or sets of instrumental parts. There are over 30 titles covering a wide range of styles, including classical pieces, folk tunes and Christmas collections. Playstrings is an ideal introduction to orchestral playing for young string players. Set of 19 parts contains: 4 x Violin 1, 4 x Violin 2, 4 x Violin 3, 2 x Viola, 3 x Cello, 2 x Double Bass/Cello 2.
Beautifully written for strings - perfect for our primary school string orchestra Anónimo
Imaginative, effective and very playable. This Suite is one of the few things of its kind on the market that's really worth playing. Players of secure grade 3 standard will enjoy working at this; traditional tunes (Raggle-Taggle Gypsies, O Waly Waly & Blow away the Morning Dew) are given a fresh, beautiful treatment by a fine composer who refuses to write boringly.
