Enjoy the rich, deep sounds of the cello and the brilliant, sparkling violin together! Martha Yasuda, Arranger for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, has created a very novel book of duos where the melody begins in verse one with the cello and in verse two, it “Flip-Flops” over to the violin.
Twenty familiar folk and classical melodies are included for young sibs or best friend string buddies to enjoy playing together! A viola part, identical to the violin part, is also included. Keys chosen are those used by the cello and viola, with the violin playing "down a string," transposed down a fifth.
Beginning melodies are really easy — I’m a Little Monkey, Hot Cross Buns, Scotland’s Burning — progressing to Bach Minuets, Rigadoon and March in G. Harmony parts are for beginning readers, progressing a bit further by the end. There is no shifting.
Christopher Rex, retired Principal Cellist with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, kindly reviewed all the arrangements in this volume and was most gracious in writing a very supportive Foreword.
