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.
EMB’s Leggiero series 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 collection 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. This series is ideal for for junior string orchestras because the works can also be performed with a third violin part instead of viola. The arrangements offer full musical value and were made by outstanding Hungarian music teachers and composers. Each volume appears in the form of a folder and includes the score and ample parts for an average-sized orchestra.
Easy but effective arrangements, for youth and amateur string orchestras, of well-known arias and ensembles from the most popular operas. They could be really successful concert items!
