Thirteen easy pieces for children's string orchestra (first position)
Beethoven's piano pieces, that is two bagatelles and various variation series composed to themes by other composers form the basis of this volume.
The style, tone and world of harmony of these short pieces and excerpts come surprisingly close to those of Beethoven's "great" works.
In this way, children can get acquainted with and share the same musical experiences at a very young age that they will later enjoy as adults when listening to symphonic concerts.

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.
