With Piano Accompaniment-These books are arranged to be performed with various combinations of instruments. This volume presents some of the most beloved repertoire for the Christmas season. Some works are well known others will sound fresh and new tomost players. The pieces may be performed as a solo for each instrument (Violin 1 Violin 2 Viola or Cello) with piano accompaniment or as duets or trios as well as full orchestra. If performed with full orchestra the pianoaccompaniment is not necessary. The string ensemble series meets all standards for ASTA (American String Teachers Association) and Suzuki Association of the Americas Inc. If performed with full orchestra no solo parts should beplayed except the 1st violin part. Note also if you wish to perform these works with full orchestra and you are short certain instruments you still have some flexibility with the score. For example if there are not enoughviolas for balance the viola (harmony part) and 3rd violin part are identical. The part may be played with all 3rd violins or equally divided between 3rd violins and violas.
