A selection of Vocal and Instrumental pieces for Junior, Secondary and Music Schools.
This CD is authored by Cecilia Vajda, pupil of Kodály formerly Professor at the Liazt Academy of Music, Budapest and Director of the Hungarian Radio Chorus and Senior Lecturer at the Welsh College of Music and Drama.
As Sir David Willcocks explains in his introductory remarks, having reached a position of some achievement in the development of musicianship skills, this CD is designed to offer teachers worthwhile music for part-singing and for playing in the classroom or concert hall. At the same time the music is offered for listening purposes, providing opportunities for perceptive or analytical listening as well as a stimulus or model for the compositional demands of GCSE.
All the items are works written for children by eminent composers and educators such as Kodály, Britten, Holszt, Liszt, Rimsky-Korsakov and Bridge.
