Cooper, Cora, ed. Violin Music by Women: A Graded Anthology, Vol. 3 Intermediate 2
The music in this volume grows in musical and technical demands as your students grow with it! Using first through fifth positions (with the last piece pushing the envelope into sixth), works range from a Classical period sonata movement to a previously unpublished contemporary composition by Marga Richter, and then on to a wild mambo by young New Zealand composer Claire Scholes. The works correspond in difficulty with grade 4 in the ASTA String Syllabus. Other composers included are Ethel Barns, Ann Mounsey Bartholomew, Gena Branscombe, Rosalind Eillcott, Julia Klumpkey and Josephine Trott. Price includes both violin and piano parts.
