Contains identical titles as Harmonious Melodies, Volume I with Ornamentation for Two Violins.
Calling all "hot dog" violinists - get ready to enjoy an exhilarating and extra level of fun and technical challenge! The melody lines from my earlier book, Harmonious Melodies For Two Violins, Volume I, now contain ornamentation (a few extra notes, trills, mordents, etc.) designed for the older student in perhaps Suzuki Book 4 and up. Plus, add a cello buddy instead of a 2nd Violin!
Since titles in this book include all pieces from Suzuki Books 1B through Book 3, younger students can play their Suzuki pieces along with the ornamented melodies in this book. Harmony parts are intermediate and work nicely with or without ornamentation. How sweet is this - two for one?! Finally, giving your older students some extra frills to add to their simplified pieces. Jazzed up recitals, here we come!
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 glowing Foreword.
