the holiday season approaches, Kantata Studios would like to offer some Christmas  music for the young string players of your family.  For the younger members of your family, who play violin, could we suggest the following compositions. ” Floating Snowflakes” offers a very unique new melody which is combined with “The First Nowell”.  In addition to “Floating Snowflakes” your young violinist might also enjoy a little piece entitled “Icecles Dripping” which again encompasses a very lovely original melody with “Silent Night”.  There are many solos on the website which are suitable for all times of the year.  The most recent composition is entitled “Wallace The Wiggly Worm”, a composition which deals with learning chromatics on the violin.  The piece is full of wonderful chromatic phrases.

For the teens there is “The Girl With The Bluesy Hair” which is written for both solo violin and viola.  The piano accompaniment is a bouncy, jazz rendition. “Variations on Linden Lea” presents the traditional melody followed by four unique variations, finishing with that lovely melody once again.  Check out many other compositions being presented  for not only violin and
viola but also cello.  If your interest is in the area of string orchestra works, you will find those compositions as well. If you would like to be advised when new compositions become available, please leave us a note and we will send you a newsletter each month.  The advantage with the newsletter is that  each composition being highlighted also has an MP3 performance attached.
