Händel, Georg Friedrich: Fifteen easy pieces for children's string orchestra (first position)

Selected and revised by Soós András
Setting: String Orchestra
Instrumentation: 3 vl1, 3 vl2, 3 vl3, 2 vlc
Series: Leggierissimo
Genre: Pedagogical performance pieces
Length: 108 pages

András Soós, who arranged and edited this volume, has selected from the composer's popular harpsichord suites, concerti grossi, operas and his Water Music movements and arias that are relatively simple both technically and in terms of musical expression, and suitable for performance by a junior orchestra. Thus from quite an early age, by interpreting the most demanding musical material students can become familiar with the language of the Baroque style and its mode of performance. The selection includes not only the well known Hornpipe and also a minuet from the Water Music, but also the famous aria from Rinaldo beginning 'Lascia ch'io pianga”'. (Any teacher or student who is interested can find the source of each piece in the list of contents.)

Leggierissimo
Modelled on the popular Leggiero series, Leggierissimo was launched by the publisher with the music schools’ youngest string players in mind. In the very easy pieces for string orchestra in the new series, a third violin part replaces the viola. Everything is in the first position, so even after just a few years’ instrumental study children can experience the pleasure of orchestral playing. Most of the volumes published so far were compiled by András Soós and László Zempléni, partly as composers of original works and arrangements, partly as transcribers of works, mainly for piano, by the greatest masters (Händel, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Tchaikovsky). Every volume appears in the form of a folder, containing both the score and the individual parts.
