SPECKERT: 27 Miniatures for String Trio. Bärenreiter.
Here is fresh material for young string ensembles presented by George Speckert who is a master arranger for amateur orchestras. Each of these 27 relatively short character pieces evokes a unique mood in its very title: Brisk, Sad, Sunset and many more. When heard in succession, the scenes sometimes unfold in the listeners’ minds like in a movie.
The collection is perfect for creating short suites with an ad libitum number of movements, and thus is ideal for school recitals, family celebrations or street busking. These miniatures can also be used to musically accompany literary readings or as soundtracks for video sequences. The second violin part may also be played by a viola.
– 27 short pieces to be combined ad libitum
– Ideal for recitals
– Separate viola part included as a substitute for the second violin
