“At the Zoo” (BA 8139) quickly became a best-selling edition. Now young violinists and pianists can take a new excursion, this time to the circus, with tightrope walkers, clowns, and snake charmers. All of them have something to teach – with lots of fun and no dreary explanations.

As if by magic, young violinists quickly grasp the mood of the piece, apply spiccato, glissando, and harmonics, learn how to use dynamic shading sensibly, and experience the difference between maestoso and grave.

The pieces were written by the Polish violin teacher Antoni Cofalik, with piano accompaniments supplied by the composer Józef Rychlik. They convincingly blend with Marcin Bruchnalski’s straightforward and lively illustrations to offer a welcome diversion in all violin lessons.
