For the first time The Schott String Quartet Series features a collection of pieces that have been originally composed in a style unique to string quartet arrangements. Internationally-acclaimed Bollywood composer Pyarelal Sharma has provided music and songs for over 450 films. This set of string quartets, composed especially for Schott, is influenced by Indian film music, Indian folk, Arabic and light Indian classical music, thus combining the alluring sound of the East with the stability of a classic Western ensemble. Another new feature that this volume has brought to the series is a special bonus CD containing performances of these charming pieces by leading members of the London Philharmonic Orchestra.The Schott String Quartet SeriesWith the first books in the series focusing on baroque, classical and romantic styles, The Schott String Quartet Series has expanded to cover music ranging from traditional pieces through to Eastern-influenced works. Aside from 'Indian Summer', which features original compositions, each book contains original arrangements of well known themes, which have often never been arranged for string quartet before. An important characteristic of these arrangements is that they allow all four instruments to demand the attention throughout the music. The pieces are suitable for amateur musicians or school students and are ideal for public performance.

    What makes this package special is the CD recording of performances by of all the selections by professional musicians, so that one who is not familiar with Indian sound can grasp how it should sound with the authentic flavor. Very rhythmically challenging and a breath of fresh air. Highly recommened...

    . I wish that Shott, via Hal leaonard, would include a CD with this same string quartet series. I would buy them all!!!

  • February 09, 2008 Very nice!.

    Excellent set of pieces. Very charming music. The first and the second pieces of the set, 'Simply love' and 'Bliss', are not very interesting pieces, they are based on tonality and don't present anything new to the quartet repertory. But from the third piece, 'Foot Print', this pieces really...

    give you the oportunity to experience a new world, they sound and feel very fresh and unique. This are a set of very satisfying pieces, and your audience will be very pleased.... Great for an intermediate level quartet or a high school quartet.
