Description

Ideal for the concert programmer, these arrangements are of two much-loved classics and yet offer flexibility of instrumental line-up. This first volume of Centre Stage featuring Dvorak's "Largo" ('From New World' Symphony) and Mussorgski's "Parade" ("Pictures at an Exhibition"), 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.

Reviews

Für jeden Musikschüler kann die Beschäftigung mit Kammermusik gar nicht früh genug beginnen: Das gemeinsame Spiel mit zwei oder drei anderen jungen Musikern hält zum aufmerksamen Zuhören an, stärkt das Selbstvertrauen und übt große musikalische Wahrheiten schon einmal im kleinen Rahmen ein. „Centre Stage“ ist eine Reihe mit einfachen Kammermusikarrangements für flexible Ensemblekombinationen mit einem Solisten. Grundsätzlich sind alle Stücke für vier Stimmen und einer je nach Bedarf heranzuziehenden Klavierbegleitung geschrieben. Die einzelnen Stücke eignen sich vor allem für den Unterricht, sind aber so geschrieben, dass sie auch im Rahmen eines Vortragsabends eine gute Figur machen. Ensemble 02/2005
