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.
The Leggiero series of Editio Musica Budapest is partly a reprint and partly a renewed edition of its forerunner, the widely known and played series Works for Youth Orchestra. It is a selection made from the most successful volumes comprising works by classical and contemporary composers and the easy arrangements of popular piano works with a new layout and attractive design. What facilitates its use for junior string orchestras is that the works can also be performed with a third violin part instead of the viola. The arrangements offering full musical value were made by the most outstanding music teachers and composers. Each volume appears in the form of a folder, with score and parts for an average orchestra.
