These two publications provide the elementary violist with a selection of short pieces (19 in the first book and 20 in the second) taken from a variety of styles and cultures. The printing is clear and each work has a short written introduction to it. As one would expect from a series compiled by Mary Cohen, the choice of repertoire is good and covers a variety of basic techniques in a musically rewarding way. Although not designed to be a progressive tutor styled book these two collection provide useful additional repertoire for the elementary violist to dip into for consolidation of technical points, concerts, assemblies and pure enjoyment. I would suggest that they are a useful addition to any viola teacher’s library.
