The highly regarded early music specialist and violinist, Walter Reiter, presents the first in a new series of four volumes dedicated to violin music from the Baroque period. Featuring 38 beautiful pieces scored for violin and keyboard accompaniment, this collection includes pieces by well-known figures such as Bach, Handel and Purcell, as well as lesser-known and rarely available works from a range of other composers. Suitable for students of ca. 1-2 years of playing experience, this book includes composer biographies and teaching notes on each piece, together with a CD recording of all works performed by Walter Reiter and Robin Bigwood.
“Each of these miniature masterpieces constitutes not just useful material for beginners to practice, but important stepping stones for progressing to the Romantic repertoire and beyond...Schott's clear, spacious, larger-than-usual print on buff paper will attract young players, who lively, small fingers could try these gems for concerts and competitions. Reiter's love for this era is palpable in his generous and informative introduction. Helpful practice notes and background on each piece and its composer, as well as a CD/MP3 disc containing full versions and play-along tracks complete this appealing package.”--Strings magazine
