Ultimate Christmas Instrumental Solos - Viola - Book/CD - Various - Alfred Music
Alfred Music’s Ultimate Christmas Instrumental Solos series offers a versatile selection of Christmas music for flute, clarinet, alto sax, tenor sax, trumpet, horn in F, trombone, violin, viola, and cello. Each book contains carefully edited arrangements appropriate to each instrument, and well suited for level 2-3 students. Popular carols are presented both individually and in medleys and suites. “Celebration Medley” includes the cheerful classics “Hallelujah Chorus” and “Joy to the World.” “Manger Medley” incorporates unique arrangements of “Away in a Manger” and “Silent Night.” And “Carol Medley” features songs great for caroling, such as “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” and “The First Noel.” Suites include “Themes from The Nutcracker Suite,” which showcases the famous “Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy” and “March”; and “Folk Carol Suite,” which contains the well-known “Coventry Carol (Lullay, Thou Little Tiny Child).” These suites are especially adaptable, with movements or themes that can be played consecutively, as one large piece, or on their own---each section is conveniently printed on a single page and has its own separate track on the provided MP3 CD. The CD includes a fully orchestrated DEMO track of each song, which features a live instrumental solo performance, followed by a PLAY-ALONG track. Also included are PDFs of piano accompaniments, and Alfred’s Tempo Changer Software.
