Viola Recital Album Volume 2--First Position
The nine pieces in this second volume of the Viola Recital Album augment those appearing in volume 2 of the viola tutor. There the pieces are integrated in ascending order of difficulty, whereas the additional pieces in the Recital Album can be handled more freely and inserted at any point for the sake of variety. 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. This volume contains Russian Song Without Words by Wilhelm Fitzenhagen, Tip Toe by Christoph Sassmannshaus and Melissa Lusk, March, The Little Prince and The Robin's Lullaby by Carrie William Krogmann, My Old Friend John by Edward Land, Pop Goes the Weasel, traditional, England, Moo-lee-wha, traditional, China and Soldier's March by Alfred Laubach. 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."Kurt Sassmannshaus is the editor of many string editions in the B√§renreiter catalogue. He continues in the tradition of "Early Start on String Instruments" founded by his father, Egon Sassmannshaus. The new editions mentioned here were developed by Kurt Sassmannshaus in conjunction with his wife Melissa Lusk and his son Christoph Sassmannshaus.
