The Scottish Fiddle Tunes for Two CD features Deborah Greenblatt performing all of the tunes in The Scottish Fiddle Tunes for Two series books on violin. The melody part comes out of one stereo speaker and the harmony part comes out of the other speaker. By adjusting your stereo’s balance control you can isolate either part so you can play the other part along with it. This CD may be used with any of the books for any of the instruments in the The Scottish Fiddle Tunes for Two series.

Reviews...

“This great compilation of Scottish fiddle tunes, with optional guitar chords, is arranged for any combination of two string instruments, allowing for versatility in the classroom or private studio. Nearly all of them are placed in keys friendly to early players such as A, D, and G major, with other keys, such as E-flat major and G minor. The tricky bowings are as good for classical players as they are for fiddlers. This collection is a great way to begin class or end a lesson on a day that seems to drag. Students will delight in playing the bright, happy tempos and finger and bowing techniques. Students can also change parts and learn about harmony. The open score printing aids the teacher in the event that a student does become lost. This collection is highly recommended.”

“The latest offerings of fiddle tunes arranged for recorders by Deborah Greenblatt are welcome additions to the folk repertory for our instrument. While the arrangements are not complex, the interactions between the voices are interesting. Some are primarily homophonic, while others display more independence in the lines. Most rhythms are straightforward, though there are a few with little tricky bits. There is nothing, however, that requires advanced rhythmic skill and that cannot be mastered by practice. The melodies are catchy. Slurs are indicated, which is useful. Metronome markings are given. Well-suited to intermediate players, and some of the selections are easy enough for more advanced beginners. Because of the pleasing nature of the melodies and of the arrangements, more experienced players with an interest in folk music will also enjoy them. They would make for nice concert programming.”
