K. Wartberg: Recital Training, vol. 1

Edition Peters (EP 11291)

Volume 1 is suitable for students in Suzuki Book 4.

The series RECITAL TRAINING consists of three repertoire volumes, each accompanied by two CDs. This collection will be useful as a supplement for Suzuki students and teachers (Books 4-6) and for students and teachers using other methods.

SPECIAL FEATURES

  • This collection of progressive violin literature is currently the only one world-wide using the “Three-Tempo-Practice-Method.”
  • The repertoire ranges from Baroque solo concertos to foot-stomping fiddle pieces and includes pieces for one, two and three violins, predominantly with piano accompaniment. All of the pieces found in books 4-6 of the Suzuki Violin School are included in these volumes.
  • Preparatory exercises and supplemental practice tips are included with most of the pieces.
  • Numerous photographs with technical details will help clarify any theoretical explanations.
  • The CDs include the performance pieces with and without the violin part, as well as many of the most important preparatory exercises. Imaginative and lively piano accompaniments, composed specifically for these CDs by David Andruss, make such technical work both fun and inspirational.
    Violins: Rudolf Gaehler, Kathrin Averdung & Kerstin Wartberg

Alfred Author-Kerstin Wartberg

Kerstin Wartberg received her professional musical education at the Conservatory (Musikhochschule) of Cologne, earning violin performance and teaching degrees. After her graduation in Germany, she went to Japan for two years, where she was the first German to study at the Talent Education Institute in Matsumoto, Japan. She graduated in 1981. In 1982 she became the director of the teacher-training program at the German Suzuki Institute, a position that she continues to hold today.

Kerstin Wartberg regularly organizes string workshops, courses and concerts. In 1987, she was the Director of the 8th Suzuki Method International Conference at the International Congress Center Berlin, which boasted 4000 active participants from more than 32 different countries. She is in demand to teach and lecture worldwide at universities, conservatories, conferences, workshops and festivals.

In addition to teaching in public forums, Kerstin Wartberg is the author of several teaching books and CDs, including the Step by Step series of violin exercise books and companion CDs (published by Alfred Music Publishing Co.) and Recital Training (published by Edition Peters). She drafted these series, based on Dr. Suzuki’s Method, at the Talent Education Institute in Matsumoto, Japan between 1981 and 1986, where they were approved by Dr. Suzuki and tested by numerous Suzuki teachers, their students and parents. Step by Step and Recital Training represent a source of Dr. Suzuki’s instrumental concepts as well as specific instructions concerning the individual pieces, in both written and audio form. Many of the publications are available in German, English, French and Spanish.
