Beautiful Music Volume IV includes fifth position along with the first four positions. It also has a lot more sixteenth (and thirty-second) notes than previous books. And, as the cover says, “all the basic bowings as well as the spiccatos and staccatos are presented in interesting duets fro [sic] the classics.” All of the songs contain two parts (with the exception of “A Canon In Unison”) and normally the melody changes lines periodically. Another aspect is that this book helps you learn to play songs with flats. Two songs have one flat (“A Two Part Invention” in D minor and “Fantasy” in F major), two others have two flats (“Sarabande” and “Canzonetta” in G minor), and another two songs have three flats (“A Canon In Octaves” in C minor “Duo No. 2” and Eb major). Volume IV has 7 less songs than Volume III, but they have the same number of pages (Volume IV has more two-page songs). Mainly why I wrote this review, however, is because the list of songs given in the description is actually the list for Beautiful Music Volume III. I made a table of contents (there isn’t one in the book) and have it pictured below.
