Klezmer Fiddle Tunes for Two

These 32 traditional Klezmer tunes are arranged for two instruments, with chords for back-up musicians included. The handy program notes will help you decide whether each tune is good for dancing, or for particular events in a Jewish wedding, etc. A source list is included to encourage further research.

Each Tunes for Two collection consists of individual spiral-bound duet books presented in score form with melody on the top line and harmony beneath so you can play each tune by yourself or with others. Duo arrangements of the tunes in this collection, in the same keys, are available for violins, violas, cellos, basses, mandolins, and soprano recorders.

The tunes in this collection are laid out so that there are no page turns to interrupt the flow of your playing.

A companion CD that may be used with any of the books for any of the instruments in this series is also available.

The Klezmer Fiddle Tunes for Two CD features Deborah Greenblatt performing all of the tunes in The Klezmer Fiddle Tunes for Two series books on 5-string viola. 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 or pan 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 Klezmer Fiddle Tunes for Two series.

Reviews...

“...The attraction of these collections is the wealth of material made available for use in a variety of ways... The arrangements are written in keys that can be played in the first position, although use of 2nd and 3rd positions will ease some string crossings and augmented 2nd stretches (the majority of the Klezmer tunes favour the harmonic minor tonality)...The printing and layout of this publication are excellent--- easy to read and well-thought out---no page turns...witty and concise program notes at the back---including suggestions for playng... Publications such as this offer limitless potential to teachers, students (levels 3 & 4 and higher), amateurs and professionals. Deborah Greenblatt continues to publish outstanding materials that will provide hours of enjoyment for violists looking for something different, interesting and fun.”
- Susan Lipchak
Canadian Viola Society Newsletter, Spring 2007

“Two very playable collections of music arranged for two violins. Lightly bowed and rarely venturing above third position... For those who enjoy good twin violin arrangements, Deborah’s work is definitely worth checking out!”
