Volume/Series: Barenreiter’s Sassmannshaus
Product Format: Performance score(s)
To accompany this volume we recommend “Spielbuch für Streicher” (‘Recital Pieces for String Ensemble’, BA 9698) and “Weihnachtsspielbuch” (‘Christmas Pieces for String Ensemble’, BA 9699), both edited by Egon Sassmannshaus. They give even the youngest learners an opportunity to try their hand at string ensemble playing.
In 1976 Egon Sassmannshaus, one of the most experienced and renowned violin teachers in Germany, published his tutor “Früher Anfang auf der Bratsche”. This standard work for young string players quickly became the most popular and best-selling tutor in the German-speaking countries for beginners on the viola. His son Kurt Sassmannshaus functioned as co-editor of the English-language edition, “Early Start on the Viola” (BA 9686, BA 9687, BA 9688, BA 9689), adapting his father’s successful tutor to meet the needs and requirements of English-speaking children.
The combined knowledge and experience of both father and son make these four volumes the most thoroughly researched and thought-through viola tutor for beginners all over the world.
