Reviews...

“43 traditional Welsh jigs, polkas, reels and waltzes are arranged here for violin duet; they are also available for two violas, two cellos, two basses or two mandolins. Each piece is only one or two pages long so there are no problems with page turns. Greenblatt has created attractive arrangements suitable for AMEB Grade 1 students. Written in simple keys with few accidentals, both parts can be played in the first position except for the first violin part in The Pursuit of Love. Chord symbols allow for the possibility of guitar or keyboard accompaniments and seven pages of Program Notes give short and interesting insights into each piece.

Greenblatt is a highly experienced teacher, performer and composer. A Master Artist with the Nebraska Arts Council’s Communities Program, she gained her degree in violin performance from the Boston University School of Fine Arts. These arrangements would be fun to play and youngsters would enjoy presenting them at eisteddfods, which is rather appropriate considering that the are of Welsh origin.”

“These very short pieces (between 1 and 2 pages) are perfect for beginners. They are very easy and can mostly be played in first position.”
