The latest volume in this popular series contains little character pieces and dances (Heroic ballad, Lullaby, Peasant song, Religious song, The Suitor's song, Solveig's song, Peasant dance, etc.), most of which are transcriptions of piano pieces.
As in the case of the other volumes in the Leggierissimo series, these works scored for a junior orchestra consisting of 1st, 2nd and 3rd violin and cello can be played in the first position.
The wooer's song
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.
