My Trio Book (Mein Trio-Buch) (Suzuki Violin Volumes 1-2 Arranged for Three Violins), Violin 2

Creator: Kerstin Wartberg | Music - 2002-05-01

This series contains all of the pieces from Volumes 1 and 2 of the Suzuki Violin School arranged for three violins.

Publisher: Alfred Publishing Company

About this book
This series contains all of the pieces from Volumes 1 and 2 of the Suzuki Violin School arranged for three violins. Suzuki Violin Volume 1 serves as the violin 1 part. The pieces can be played with or without piano accompaniment, which expands their performance possibilities. Another advantage is that students at different playing and reading levels can make music together. The score contains a chart that lists the level of difficulty of each piece and each part so that the teacher can easily assign parts. A CD is available containing all of the trio arrangements. All of the parts were purposely kept as simple as possible. A table listing the reading skills required for each piece is found in the back of the violin 2 and violin 3 books.

About this book
Berlioz's Orchestration Treatise is a classic textbook which has been used as a guide to orchestration and as a source book for the understanding both of Berlioz's music and of orchestral practice in the nineteenth century. This was the first English translation of Berlioz's complete text since 1856, and it is accompanied throughout by Hugh Macdonald's extensive and authoritative commentary on the instruments of Berlioz's time and on his own orchestral practice, as revealed in his scores. It also includes extracts from Berlioz's writings on instruments in his Memoirs and in his many articles for the Parisian press. The Treatise has been highly valued both for its technical information about instruments but also for its poetic and visionary approach to the art of instrumentation. Berlioz was not only one of the great orchestrators of the nineteenth century, he was also the author with the clearest understanding of the art.

    Much better than I expected

    I wrote this review for the person who knows nothing about violins at all:This violin is of much higher quality than I ever imagined. It is not, of course, even a good violin by professional standards, but it is a very solid beginner's instrument. I bought it for myself, though I am not a violinist, but I have been playing guitar, bass, and keys for more than six years, and I have played violins before. My ex-girlfriend lent me her first violin when we were dating, and it was really, really horrible. This one is pretty close to her current violin, which was a pretty decent student model. I did a lot of research before buying this one, and I'm really glad I did. It is rated highly by violin teachers and other violinists, but very lowly by people who have no idea what they are talking about. I have read that a lot of violins under $100 don't even have a sound post, which is a crucial part of the violin and absolutely cannot be discarded.

    Review done by a music teacher

    This violin--to be honest is very cheap. Not just in cost but in quality.BUT overall, not too horrible. Especially if you don't have an option on renting one, or if you don't mind buying one to have.It isn't perfect, but there are some decent qualities about it. I'm very persnickety about instruments, my woodwind instruments cost well into and beyond thousands of dollars range, even my beginning ones.This little guy, for what I want it for--learning the basics (fingering, bowing, proper care) is PERFECT for anyone.Here are my notes about this violin:1. The appearance of the violin is alright. It isn't anything special. In fact, it looks as if paper has been placed over the wood frame, and painted to look like it has groves, or actual wood designs.2. The bow is acceptable, it works well enough for a beginner (young and old). It takes some effort getting the strands to be tight enough. I had to do a lot of pushing in and... 4/5 Carole - See all my reviews This review is from: Mendini 4/4 MV300 Solid Wood Satin Antique Violin with Hard Case, Shoulder Rest, Bow, Rosin and Extra Strings (Full Size) (Electronics) This violin--to be honest is very cheap.

    Great quality/price ratio!

    0 5/5 Captain Cadabra - See all my reviews This review is from: Mendini 4/4 MV300 Solid Wood Satin Antique Violin with Hard Case, Shoulder Rest, Bow, Rosin and Extra Strings (Full Size) (Electronics) Great violin? No. As nice as the ones the music stores rent for $25 a month, yes. Comes with tons of accessories that would cost you $30-40.As a violin teacher, I like to have these on hand for cheap entry level instruments, or rent for $10/month. That way a student doesn't have to get into a year contract at a local music store if they aren't sure if they want to stick with it or not.A great way to get started on the violin for VERY little money. After owning this violin for a year or so, the student can decide to invest in a nicer one, and pass this along to a sibling/friend/Craigslist.Only disclaimer is: make sure you have someone who can setup a violin for you (the case with all violins, regardless of quality). They are NOT instruments that can be played right out of the box, and if you have a store do this for you, it's probably a $30-45 fee.

    Good for someone starting out

    0 3/5 GJC (Houston) - See all my reviews This review is from: Bow-Right for 1/4 - 1/2 Violin In principle this is a very useful product that clearly encourages correct bowing. It suffers from a few less than desirable traits. First, it is not the easiest thing to put on and often doesn't stay put. For this reason I often worried about scratching my violin. You really need to take care putting it on and taking it off to be sure there is no damage. This may be less of a concern for a rented student violin, but I never put this my better violin. Second, it encouraged correct bowing by forcing you to fit between two metal bars. Again this is okay for an inexpensive fiberglass bow, but no way do you want a more expensive bow constantly scraping the metal guides. So my recommendation is that it works great if you are not preoccupied with thinking about potential damage. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 14, 2008

    Works okay when it's on but a pain to use overall

    My daughter takes violin lessons and her violin teacher suggested we purchased a bow guard/guide to help her strenghten her wrist motion and teach her how to keep the bow nice and straight as it was swerving a bit.The idea itself is great...the actual use of it...it is not.For starters, there is no way that a six year old can put this tool on or off by herself. I had to do it for her each time and trust me, there was some frustration on my part associated with the process, which took several minutes. The problem is that you have to open the sides wide enough to fit the width of the instrument by stretching the metal bars yet retaining the same shape. This is very tricky. I don't know how anyone can do this without scratching the violin. Everytime I had to do this I would cringe wondering of the damage this would cause the violin.If that wasn't bad enough, even once it was on it kept moving and sliding proving little worth to what we are actually trying to do: keep... 2/5 Tamara - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Affordable and Good Quality

    I decided to wait a while before reviewing this product to allow my daughter ample time to give me feedback.After months of researching an affordable violin for my 13 yr old daughter, I found this here on Amazon and brough it for Christmas. I had so many worries: how would I get the bridge installed, how much it would cost, would it tune, etc. Well, my daughter's music teacher installed the bridge with no problem and at no charge and my daughter states she loves this violin more than the Yamaha brand we had rented.Also, I read a lot of complaints about the strings constantly breaking on other "affordable" violins, we haven't had that problem with this Cremona. In addition to that, my daughter says that she hasn't had issues with tuning. Keep in mind, she is in the 8th grade and has played the violin since 4th grade, so I like to think she is somewhat knowledgeable. She's definitely more knowledgeable about violins compare to me.Thanks, Cremona for... 5/5 Teresa (Silver Spring, MD) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Own A Great Student Violin At A "Rental Price"

    Before going any further...this is a student violin. It is not made for professional use, just school classes, practice and school concerts. Some people review these comparing them to higher end products.Here is what I look for in a student violin:* The ability to tune the instrument and have it hold its tune.* Basic quality: it need not be a one piece back or have flaming on the finish. Just the appropriate woods and materials used to make the violin.* Price: I prefer to own my instruments as opposed to rent them, provided I can find something in the price range of a rental or not too much more, figuring I can probably resell the instrument when it is no longer needed.* Proper shop adjustment (Note: you will need to seat the bridge! Violins typically do not ship with their bridge in place).Why did I buy a Cremona? I have owned several student violins before, with this being my first Cremona purchase. My prior purchases were a `no... 4/5 B. Colonna (Somewhere in NJ) - See all my reviews, October 10, 2011

    My wife and I read many reviews before settling on this violin...Amazed! The instrument is beautiful looking the the case is very nice as well. Due to my inexperience with this particular instrument and over excitement to have it ready and playable for our daughters birthday gift, I did pop the fat G string and had to run out and get a new one. I found the new string to be better quality though so sure you may get steal of a price on this one but their is always room to for improvement with a few upgrades later. WORKS though keeps it's tune the fine tuners are the key, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE TOP PEGS, it's not a guitar.As for the bridge that many peoples reviews have complained about and scared me for a few...after thinking about it and researching confirming the reasoning for the bridge not being installed during shipping or if the instrument is not in use for a while, the tension is released to prevent warpage to the entire instrument and damage to the delicate bridge... 5/5 Joseph - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great Instrument For Starting Out

    My teacher was more than pleasantly surprised when I brought this MV400 to him for setup.. Which by the way, was nothing more than tuning the strings. The action, tuning pegs, bridge and sound post were all matched and aligned properly. My instructor was pleased to note the violin had inlaid purfling as well as a solid set of strings. In fact, the strings (according to his trained ear, not mine) are higher quality and sound than a "Red Label Super Sensitive" set I purchased. The bows are of various weight and quality, with one being a better option than the other in this starter kit. I do recommend purchasing a different rosin for a darker tone.The instrument is not perfect, nor is it professional grade but for the beginning student (or in my case, the returning student) but a better value will likely not be found. I will be able to make it sing for a few years to come. My instructor labeled this violin as a "grade 7 or 8 level instrument."

    Really impressive for the price: I'm an experienced violinist

    Customer Video Review Length:: 0:36 MinsI am an experienced (though not professional) violinist and this is spectacularly good for the price. This video of me playing a bit of Strauss on it to show what it sounds like.Granted, it is a cheap violin, so you have to expect a cheap violin. It's fairly lurid bright orange, the case feels like it's made of polystyrene, and the feel is cheap all over.HOWEVER, it plays remarkably well. Well enough that I actually actively enjoy playing it. I bought it because I am travelling at the moment and didn't want to bring my normal violin with me. I'm not a professional violinist but a serious one who has been playing for 34 years. I was not expecting this violin to be enjoyable to play - I was just expecting it to be adequate. But I can make a quite nice tone on it.I read a lot of the reviews of this violin and some of the problems reported might be because of variations in factory production, but might also be because you... 5/5 Categoricienne (Chicago, US) - See all my reviews This review is from: Mendini 4/4 MV400 Ebony Fitted Solid Wood Violin with Hard Case, Shoulder Rest, Bow, Rosin, Extra Bridge and Strings - Full Size (Electronics), September 26, 2014

Tango is a style of ballroom dance music in 2/4 or 4/4 time that originated among European immigrant populations of Argentina and Uruguay (collectively, the "Rioplatenses").[1] It is traditionally played by a sextet, known as the orquesta típica, which includes two violins, piano, double bass, and two bandoneons. Earlier forms of this ensemble sometimes included flute, clarinet and guitar. Tango may be purely instrumental or may include a vocalist. Tango is well-known across much of the world, along with the associated tango dance. Tango dance and tango music originated in the area of the Rio de la Plata, and spread to the rest of the world soon after.[1] Early tango was known as tango criollo, or simply tango. Today, there are many tango dance styles, including Argentine tango, Uruguayan tango, Ballroom tango (American and International styles), Finnish tango, and vintage tangos. What many[according to whom?] consider to be the authentic tango is that closest to that originally danced in Argentina and Uruguay, though other types of tango[which?] have developed into mature dances in their own right. In 2009, Argentina and Uruguay suggested that the Tango be inscribed onto the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists and in October of the same year UNESCO approved it. Ballroom Tango is a ballroom dance that branched away from its original Argentine roots by allowing European, American, Hollywood, and competitive (a.k.a dancesport) influences into the style and execution of the dance. The present day ballroom tango is divided into two disciplines: American Style and International Style. Both styles are enjoyed as social and competitive dances, but the International version is more globally accepted as a competitive style. Both styles share a closed dance position, but the American style allows its practitioners to separate from closed position to execute open moves, like underarm turns, alternate hand holds, dancing apart, and side-by-side choreography.
