Klezmer Fiddle Tunes - Violin
Includes Online Audio

Arranged by Ros Stephen & Julian Rowlands
Edited by Ros Stephen & Julian Rowlands

From the Publisher

The author of Argentinian Tango and Folk Tunes for Violin (ED 13379), Ros Stephen, presents a wide-ranging collection of Klezmer tunes and Jewish melodies for violin. Highly flexible to use, the pieces may be performed by a solo violinist or in a variety of instrumental combinations. The music has been carefully edited to create stylistic, authentic arrangements. Ornamentation, bowing and fingering have been included to enable stylistic performances, and there is also guidance on general style, as well as adding your own ornamentation, embellishment and improvisation. The volume is accompanied by a CD with a recording of all tunes performed by Ros Stephen with a live backing band, as well as play-along versions of all tracks.

Difficulty guide: 3-8
