Four-part flexible chamber music arrangements featuring a soloist Ideal for the concert programmer, these arrangements are of two much-loved classics and yet offer flexibility of instrumental line-up. This fourth volume of the series Centre Haydn, Poco Adagio Cantabile (Emperor Quartet) - Charpentier, Prelude (Te Deum) can be performed by chamber groups or, equally well, enlarged with more players to each part. These straightforward arrangements allow the soloist a chance to shine and come with a helpful but optional piano accompaniment for rehearsal or for supporting the performance. Tailor-made as concert items, these pieces will familiarize young instrumentalists with standard musical repertoire and additionally encourage them to listen attentively. Most importantly, they will experience the pleasure of music making with others. The scoring is flexible (the soloist in Part 1 for example could be for flute, oboe, violin, clarinet or alto saxophone) and whilst written for a chamber group, more players could equally well join each part. An optional piano part has been included for rehearsal or to support the performance.

Die einfachen Arrangements für variables Ensemble mit einem Solisten und optionaler Klavierunterstützung machen junge Instrumentalisten mit den musikalischen Standardwerken bekannt und eignen sich ideal zum Vortrag bei Konzerten und Musikfestivals. Ganz nebenbei wird dabei nicht nur Zusammenspiel und aufmerksames Zuhören geschult, sondern auch das Selbstvertrauen der jungen Musiker gestärkt. ensemble Nr. 4, 2009, S. 73 (Manuel Rösler)
