Indian Chants for Strings (Score & Parts)

Score and 5 parts: Violin I,II; Viola (or Violin III); Cello

George Speckert has made a name with his simple, but tuneful arrangements for mixed string groups.  With Indian songs from different regions, his new publication leads “young” string quartets into unusual geographical and musical territories.  The pieces are easy to play and rhythmic; distinctive melodies lend a very special flavour.  They can also be successfully used in teaching mixed string groups in schools.  Whether they are used individually in teaching or concerts, or as a set, they will add welcome variety.

- Easy-to-play (level of difficulty 2)
- With rhythmic interest
- attractive melodies
- flexible instrumentation – from string quartet to string orchestra
- 3rd violin part can replace viola
