Description

The latest addition to the best-selling Fiddler series focuses on the rich, diverse and pure folk tradition of Greece. A wide variety of styles is presented, featuring music from Crete, the Peloponnese, the Balkans, Asia Minor and mainland Greece. Exciting rhythms and interesting modes combine to produce high spirited pieces, some of which will already be familiar to lovers of Greek culture world-wide. The Violin Edition offers flexible arrangements for violin solo or two violins (second violin part is very easy), as well as chord symbols for a guitar accompaniment. In addition the Complete Edition also contains a piano accompaniment.
