The seven recital pieces in volume 3 of the “Viola Recital Album” augment the repertoire in volumes 2 and 3 of the Sassmannshaus tutor “Early Start on the Viola.” But other viola tutors will also benefit from these pieces, all of which are in first position.
The editors have chosen a short series of delightful little pieces by such unknown composers as Septimus Winner (“The Last Rose of Summer”) or Martin Greenwald (“Arminta Waltz”).
Each piece is accompanied by duo version in which the teacher or an advanced learner can play the second part. There is also a piano part that can be played by the teacher or parents.
– New recital pieces for the proven viola tutor
– Well-known traditionals
– Every piece in first position
– Second viola part for duo performance
– Piano accompaniment
All the pieces in the four “Viola Recital Albums” represent welcome additions to the already varied repertoire of Egon Sassmannhaus's viola tutor “Early Start on the Viola”.
