Viola Recital Album, Volume 1
9 Recital Pieces in First Position for Viola and Piano or Two Violas
These volumes contain a wide selection of easy recital pieces. They are designed as companion volumes to the Early Start on the Viola method but work equally well as a supplement to any other viola method. As all pieces are written entirely in first position, they can be used just after a few months of lessons. Well-known as well as unfamiliar pieces provide welcome additional repertoire for young students and teachers.
The piano part may be played by the teacher or an advanced student. Alternatively a second viola part allows duet playing with the teacher during lessons.
The Viola Recital Album, Volume 1, can be used as a supplement to the Early Start on the Viola method, Volumes 1 and 2 (BA 9686 and BA 9687). The 18 pieces in Volume 1 are structured to follow the same progression of finger patterns introduced in the Early Start method. This systematic progression helps the student to solidify the hand position and improve intonation. The basic bowing techniques do not require changes in bow speed or sounding point. The young performer can focus on a straight and beautifully placed bow that produces a pleasing and clear sound.
