The pieces in this book have been specially selected for their accessibility, making this folio suitable for players of a wide range of abilities fromelementary level (1st to 3rd position only) to shorter but more challenging, adventurous and unusual works. The set as a whole represents the large amount of variety and character alive in today's top-level compositions. Anexcellent repertoire source that is fresh, exciting and highly accessible.
