The volumes in this new series contain duos, trios and quartets, their degree of difficulty ranging from easy through intermediate to advanced. Every piece is a transcription or an arrangement, since in editing the volumes our primary concern was to provide a collection of valuable and interesting compositions, as freely variable as possible as regards instrumentation, for music school students and also for adults who make music for their own pleasure. The range and pitch of the parts enable the works to be performed on any required or possible combination of the given instruments.

In the Easy quartets volume, in addition to independent movements a number of works can be found that can be performed together to form suites. Thus from short movements that can also be used separately cycles may be formed which can enliven a little domestic concert, an instrument demonstration or the programme of a performance for a festive occasion. Besides sequences of Renaissance dances, arrangements of Bach chorales, choral works and classical dances, the varied content also includes Romantic movements suitable for enjoyable domestic music-making.
