About this item:
All the parts are purposely kept as simple as possible. The priority in this endeavor is not compositional elegance but rather the ease of playing music in 3 parts. After the notes have been learned, the real work can begin: improving the quality of the ensemble playing. The main teaching focus should be the adjustments between the various voices with regard to: intonation, rhythm, dynamics, articulation, phrasing, bowing, breathing together, beginning and ending phrases together, etc.

Skill level
violin I: easy - medium
violin II: easy - medium
cello: very easy - medium
