LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Thursday, January 17, 2013
Faber Music, the leading independent British publisher of classical, contemporary, media, printed pop and educational music, releases Bags of Classics for Violin and Bags of Classics for Cello as part of the Bags Of series for string instruments. Great for students as a method supplement, sight-reading practice, or just for fun, each book is filled with favourite melodies from famous works of classical music, arranged for the grade 3-4 player who is developing position work and perhaps trying vibrato.

Bags of Classics for Violin and Bags of Classics for Cello contain pieces selected and arranged by leading string pedagogue Mary Cohen to lie well under the hand. The books introduce a wide variety of styles and sound worlds, from Vivaldi and Purcell to Saint-Saens and Holst.

Also available are Bags of Tunes, Bags of Folk, Bags of Style, Bags of American Folk, and Bags of Fun books for violin, viola, and cell.

Bags of Classics for Violin (12-0571536026) and Bags of Classics for Cello (12-0571536034) are now available for $7.25 each at music retail stores and at alfred.com.
