Essential Melodies is a delightful collection of repertoire pieces by famous composers. These pieces have been skilfully adapted for the violin by a number of excellent arrangers, with the emphasis on variety, musical quality and melodic interest. Various dance forms are presented in this book including the rondeau, waltz and tango. With a selection of styles to choose from you can be confident that concerts and school performances will be a success. Some of the pieces can be played entirely in the first position; others involve some position changing but none of them requires virtuoso technique.
