A Modern School for the Violin (Wilhelmj, August)
No files submitted.
London: Novello, 1898. Plates 10600, 10654
From the uploader's mother's library. The bound cloth edition is in 6 Books, 2 per volume. This Violin Method is the result of a collaboration between August Wilhelmj and James Brown who outline their ambitions in the General Prefaces to each volume. The margins are of variable width, sometimes to accommodate the instructor's remarks, which are very few in number, which seems to indicate this Method was regrettably not followed with great industry by its former learner. On page 9 of Book 1 the teacher recommends adding Wilhelmj's recreational "Dances from Denmark", pleasure following instruction.
12 Folk-Dances from Denmark
London: Novello n.d. Plate 11043

This item is included in the category Easy Works for Violin. 1st pos.
Arrangements and Transcriptions
For Violin and Double Bass (Besset)
Julian Raoul Besset
This arrangement was made for the composer's daughter and son-in-law who ventured to suggest they could play a duo together on the occasion of their 10th wedding anniversary which explains why two versions have been imagined by the composer, leaving his struggling (instrumentally speaking) son-in-law with an obvious choice.
