Here, in a special album designed specifically for the violinist in the earlier stages of technical mastery, we have compiled much of the best literature and favorite selections for the violin. Specifically selected for the easiest keys on the violin and with a minimum of fancy finger – or bow – work, these magical classics, from Offenbach's legendary Barcarolle to Tchaikovsky's Chanson Triste, will bring a challenging and rewarding collection of short and medium-length concert-piece masterworks to inspire your development on the violin. Noted American violinist Geoffrey Applegate performs these pieces with grace and subtlety. Study his masterful interpretations and then, as he steps aside, learn and perform them against the magnificent backdrop of the Stuttgart Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Emil Kahn. This is quite simply a treasure-trove of beautiful violin classics which you will come back to again and again – even after you've established yourself as the next virtuoso!
Includes a music score, printed on high-quality paper, and audio recordings containing a complete version with soloist, in stereo; then a second version in full stereo of the orchestral accompaniment, minus the soloist.
The audio is accessed online using the unique code inside each book and can be streamed or downloaded. The audio files include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right.
