Publisher Desc. String teachers have long turned to Ensembles for Strings to fulfill the need for easy to intermediate ensemble pieces for student string players. Familiar classical melodies are arranged here for 2, 3, 4 or more players - even string orchestra. Each piece is scored to be playable in first position, and in such a manner that maximum results will be achieved regardless of the instrumentation employed. All of the material has been carefully edited and bowed, and was performance tested by the string faculty at San Jose State University.
