Viennese music has become almost synonymous with Johann Strauss II and his great waltzes. But of course there were other luminaries: his father Johann Strauss I, his talented brothers Josef and Eduard as well as their colleagues, friends and rivals. This collection includes music by some of these; and apart from waltzes we have polkas (slow and fast), a couple of melodies from operettas and a march. The selection ranges from shorter, eminently playable miniatures to a handful of more extended and challenging arrangements. The waltz kings were first and foremost fiddlers. They led their orchestras from the front, instrument and bow in hand. As a young man Johann Strauss II used to practise his violin in a full-length mirror so he would look every inch the part. They knew how to write for the violin, how to make it sing and dance, and this helps to make the repertoire a perfect foil to the other volumes in this series. The arrangements in this collection can be performed as solos, duets, or trios, or by larger ensembles. In fact, here are all the resources to recreate a Viennese café orchestra! The full range of traditional fiddle repertoire is now at your fingertips! Using these generous collections, you can create your own ceilidh, barn dance, jazz club, Sarajevo street-café or Gypsy gathering. Some of this music is familiar, some more exotic, but all of it is absolutely authentic, faithfully arranged and, above all, hugely enjoyable. Each title in the series is available in two formats: the violin edition (with an optional easy violin part and guitar chord); or the complete edition, which also includes both keyboard and violin accompaniments. Either format is hugely flexible, which means the music can be played as solos, duets or trios as well as with larger ensembles. Edward Huws Jones has travelled extensively researching fiddle-playing traditions. In each book he explains the background of the particular musical style, giving his own suggestions for a lively performance. And to help recreate the spirit of the music, every book in the series is beautifully illustrated.
