Ilana Cravitz announces the publication of her new book,
Klezmer Fiddle. This is a how-to guide. It is a new tutor book, published by Oxford University Press and is available through an introductory offer at: http://www.ilanacravitz.com/bookoffer.html The book contains 16 tunes in treble clef with chords above the stave for easy accompaniment. Currently in use by clarinet players, oboeists, viola and bass players, and cellists, the melodies, accompaniments, and tips on playing have appeal and application well beyond violinists.
* Each tune has a ‘workshop’ on playing in traditional style.
* There’s also a CD with the complete set of tunes, historical recordings of a selection of the melodies, plus backing tracks you can play along to.
* The package contains two pull-out booklets with bandstand-style parts for sekund and bass players.
