Arranged for beginners, these well-known and original pieces will successfully launch instrumentalists into the exciting and rewarding world of ensemble playing. The parts are of equal importance and are written within comfortable ranges for each instrument. An optional supporting piano part is provided to reinforce the ensemble if necessary.
Although very elementary, the pieces are substantial enough to be presented as ensemble performance material for music festivals or examinations. Having successfully mastered these pieces, players can then progress to the Centre Stage series which offers slightly more challenging material in the same instrumental format with the added bonus of featuring a soloist! (James Rae).
