American and Christmas Melodies: Double Stop Solos and Duets for Viola, Volumes I and II, offer interesting material for students at varying levels of advancement. Volume I has nice duets that later become double-stop solo versions, while Volume II, using the same pieces, presents the same concept with a higher degree of technical challenge and bravura. These arrangements are expertly written and carefully edited for the student and they delight with originality and flair.
