The very easy transcriptions for string orchestra in the Leggierissimo series can be played by children even after just a few years of instrumental study. In the pieces the viola has been replaced by a third violin, and every part in every volume is playable in the first position. This volume contains little pieces and dance movements by Gluck, Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, J. Chr. Bach, Vanhal, Hummel, Gebauer, P. Schulz and Diabelli, together with three easy transcriptions for string orchestra of Hungarian dances dating from the 1800s.

Ismeretlen szerző: Three Hungarian dances (from a Pozsony manuscript)
Modeled on the popular Leggiero series, Leggierissimo was launched with music schools’ youngest string players in mind. In these very easy pieces for string orchestra, a third violin part replaces the viola. Everything is in the first position, so even after just a few years of 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.
