There is no piano accompaniment part, only a CD. Some of the tracks have metronome clicks beforehand to establish tempo, so it makes it unperformable. A few pieces are catchy, but most are a little boring. Definitely not my favorite stuff by Piazzolla! I do not think this is worth $20.

Bach, J.S. - 6 Cello Suites, BWV 1007-1012 - Viola solo - arranged by Leonard Davis - International Music Company
REVIEWED BY: Student, SANDRA SARAVIA

I bought the cello suites in reality just to have them around while I was at home playing. The font is big (yet not horrendously child like big) and very nicely formatted as every single piece fits on the entirety of one page or two pages. The original Bach bowings and trills were left intact and the paper is of course the satisfying thickness we have come to expect from the International Music Company. Written in original key, and the treble clef included in part where the notes start to get high. Worth every penny, yet I expected nothing less from this brand.

Great intermediate pieces
These are great pieces for an intermediate player. They offer some challenges in terms of shifting and tone but, with a little work, are eminently doable and musically enjoyable.

Lots of fun
I bought this volume as a relief from working on Bach and Handel. It has a lot of great tunes from fast reels to soulful Scottish airs. While they don't present the same sort of challenge offered by Bach, etc., they do present more modest challenges that allow me to concentrate on tone, string crossing, and bowing technique. All in all an enjoyable, fun collection. I love it.

Warning: Violin Part only
I assumed this came with the piano part (orchestra reduction) but there wasn't one. I see the small print now. It is annoying that this wasn't made more obvious as every concerto I've ever purchased (and other Schott editions) have always come with a piano score. For the price, I just assumed...
Mozart - No. 3 in G, K. 216 - Cadenzas for the Violin - arranged by Badura-Skoda - Doblinger

Easiest of the cadenzas for Mozart No. 3
Several years ago I went into the store to check out the cadenzas for Mozart No. 3. I looked at them all, and this one was definitely the easiest. It was my first time playing in the Federation Music Festival, and this was perfect (and actually, once I showed it to my teacher, she's used it every year since then for other students!) At that point I had been playing for about 3.5 years, and the cadenza was still challenging for me, but possible. The others I looked at were way too difficult at that time. It has some chords, but not really any sections of double stops, and it does go up into 4th position occasionally, but if you can play Mozart No. 3 you should be able to handle it. Just make sure you give yourself enough time to learn it and get up to speed. Highly recommended for intermediate/advancing players.

This has been one of the best additions to my studio library. All songs are in first position in either the key of G, D, or A. Great for beginners who are ready to move on to the next step. The favorites in my studio have been 'Ride, Ride' and 'Fantasia. Well worth the investment!
