Quick Overview

For: Violin 1, Violin 2, Cello 1, Cello 2, Double Bass, Piano (Viola 1, Viola 2 optional)

Half-Past-Three-Blues – this piece of music – performed with a “swing” – expresses a pleasant, idle mood, like lying in a hammock on a very warm afternoon in summer. This composition is ideal to train first shiftings.

While the parts of violin 1, viola 1 and cello 1 include challenging passages (up to the 3rd/4th position), the parts of violin 2, viola 2 and cello 2 can be played by students in the first or second year of learning the instrument. These parts also contain pleasing melodies apart from accompaniment.

Vl. 1: 1st and 3rd position
Vl. 2: 1st finger pattern in the 1st position
Vla. 1: all finger patterns in the 1st position
Vla. 2: 1st finger pattern in the 1st position
