Following his popular violin duet album Klezmer & More, Aleksey Igudesman's worldwide wanderings take us into the diverse realms of Celtic Music. In his own inimitable style, he will energize and inspire middle-grade to more advanced players to explore Celtic music. His arrangements of Morrison's Jig, My Bonnie lies over the Ocean, Auld Lang Syne through to his own original pieces, are all truly Celtic in spirit. Added notes on the pieces and helpful basic guidelines for playing in style are provided.
(...) His Celtic and More is a lively collection of ten duets encased in a zany and colourful cover, particularly appealing to boys. The pieces are mainly Irish and Scottish, but Igudesman is particularly interested in the diversity of Celtic music and in mixing musical styles, so there are also references to Russian, Eastern European and Bluegrass. (…) I would highly recommend this publication for any student.
