This book contains both exercises and songs for performance. Intonation, articulation, phrasing, and rhythm are strengthened in the exercises, and the conditioning is extended so that the playing of the songs and the recital pieces will be a pleasure for players as well as for listeners. The first and second parts are of the same degree of difficulty, so that the parts can be exchanged in the repeats.
The songs include: Lieder, folk songs, chorales, choral songs, canons, song, Christmas carols, birthday songs, etc. The different recital pieces are intended as preparation for the great world of music literature. Tempos and dynamics can be adjusted according to the student's ability. Titles and lyrics are in German.
