Speckert, George- Fiddle Tunes- Irish Music for Strings- (Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, and Cello)- Barenreiter 2020.
– Simple yet catchy melodies
– Trains early ensemble playing
– Ideal for the first concert performances
The cheerful and often melancholic melodies of Ireland lend themselves well for easy string quartet or ensemble repertoire. Wonderful tunes such as “A Lovely Lass” and “The Foggy Dew” have been arranged by Speckert for two violins, viola and cello. In all pieces the viola can be replaced by a third violin. “Fiddle Tunes” forms part of the “Easy String Ensemble” series.
