Compatible Quartets for Strings

Compatible Quartets for Strings

Recommended by Dan Clark, School Orchestra Specialist

compatible quartets for stringsArranged/composed by Doris Gazda and Larry Clark, here are 21 quartets that can be played by any combination of four string instruments.  Do you have 3 viola students and a bass player who are buddies and want to play something together?  How about two violins and two cellos?  Or the standard quartet of two violins, viola and cello?  These flexible books will take care of any of those combinations and many more.

They are also progressive in nature, so the beginning of the book is about a grade 1.5 level and it ends up at about grade 2.5.  All four quartet parts are in each book, so each player picks a line and sticks with it to the end of the piece.  Each piece can be repeated and parts interchanged to lengthen the the selection and provide a different musical color too.

The Compatible Duets and Compatible Trios have become some of Stanton’s best selling ensemble books for young string players, so be sure to check out these wonderful quartets!

Dan Clark has worked at Stanton’s since 1979, primarily with orchestra music and print promotions.  A “working” musician, he’s a classical cellist, a rock & jazz bassist and a folk & country guitarist/singer. His free time is spent with family or reading, gardening, cycling and working puzzles. He also has a reputation as a pretty good joke teller. Seriously.
