This book is licensed to The Yasuda Music Company LLC by the International Suzuki Association.
Written with the young to intermediate student in mind, all Suzuki pieces are included in Books 1B through Book 3 (also including six non-Suzuki pieces), bringing the grand total to 28 familiar, standard pieces! The same titles are included in the versions for Two Violins, Violin/Cello, Violin/Viola and Viola/Cello.
It includes the Bach Minuets, Gavottes and Bourrees as well as pieces by Beethoven, Brahms and Schumann. The second viola parts are busier than most, while adhering to harmonies found in piano accompaniments.
Volume I is alphabetized according to composer names and can be used by teachers to help prepare students before they rehearse with a pianist or can actually be performed without a pianist.
