A new piano trio arrangement of Scott Joplin’s Weeping Willow is now available. It opens with a long piano solo. The violin and cello parts begin to sing during the first statement of the theme. The cello part begins in bass line groove. By the end of the trio, tenor clef reading is required for the cellist. The violin part requires double stops and shifting. Heavily dependent on accurate rhythmic playing in all the parts, the piano shines in this arrangement with the strings intensifying the melodic experience.
On Your A Game is a piano duet in A minor for early elementary players. In 3/4 time it requires the pianists to step up to the plate with accurate counting. Sheet music is available here. Listen to On Your A Game.
Traditional Christmas Carols for solo cello are the most advanced of the string sets. I wanted some challenge for people who have been isolated and playing alone. All of the arrangements require double stops. The arrangements are suitable for recital or special music in church.
Traditional Christmas Carols for string duets are more challenging that the set for solo instrument and optional piano. Four of the five carols are in the key of F. Joy to the World is in the key of D Major. In all the duets, both partners have a chance to play the melody.
This is the easiest string set. The sheet music for violin is available for purchase here. The sheet music for viola is available for purchase here. The sheet music for cello is available for purchase here. The piano parts are included with each set.
