Klezmer Fiddler - Violin Edition
Traditional fiddle music from around the world
The full range of the traditional fiddle repertoire is now available. The extensive collections allow you to authentically experience ceilidh music, barn dance, jazz club atmosphere or Sarajevo's street cafe music. Some of them are familiar, others are excitingly new. What all the pieces have in common is their unconditional authenticity, the great care taken in the arrangements and, above all, their enormous entertainment value.
Each title in this series is available in two editions: as a violin edition (with an additional very easy violin part and chord information for guitar ad lib.); or as a Complete Edition with all violin parts, accompanying notes and piano accompaniment. This high level of flexibility enables a wide range of formations: solo, duet, trio and even larger ensembles.
Edward Huws Jones has studied the tradition of fiddle playing extensively. In each volume, he explains the background to each style of music and makes suggestions for its optimal performance.
