Wohlfahrt Easiest Elementary Violin Method – Number 93
Hello guys, this is the first time I’ve been playing a piece from Wohlfahrt Easiest Elementary Violin Method. It’s actually a pretty nice book. Thanks to ChibiEdo for talking about this method in the forum.
The book Wohlfahrt Easiest Elementary Violin Method starts indeed with very elementary pieces, but it’s a pretty progressive method. I played number 93 here. The book is meant for a student to play together with his/her teacher. Each piece is a duo. The first voice is for the student and the second voice for the teacher. Many times the second voice is much harder than the first voice. For this piece they are both of the same difficulty and that’s why I chose this one, so that I could play both voices.
I liked the beginning and ending of the duo. The melody in the middle was a bit harder and I think my intonation wasn’t that great there. It sounds a bit weird in the recording. Also I tried to find a recording of the duo but couldn’t find any. So I didn’t know what the two voices would sound like together. I think was a bit lost, didn’t know very well which one is the melody and which one is the accompaniment. That’s why it sounds a bit weird in the middle. Anyway, I’m very sure now that I’m not going to do a duo again soon… If I could play together with somebody else, then I would love it. You can look at each other and feel what it should sound like. And that is fun! But playing along with a metronome, and hoping that the two parts will sound nice together is not very successful in my opinion. I much more like to play along with a piano accompaniment for example. So next time that I play a piece from this book, I’ll just be recording the student part.
Anyway, hope you like it at least a little bit.
