    The volumes in this new series contain duos, trios and quartets, their degree of difficulty ranging from easy through intermediate to advanced. Every piece is a transcription or an arrangement, since in editing the volumes our primary concern was to provide a collection of valuable and interesting compositions, as freely variable as possible as regards instrumentation, for music school students and also for adults who make music for their own pleasure. The range and pitch of the parts enable the works to be performed on any required or possible combination of the given instruments.

    Like the Easy quartets volume, this one too contains dance sequences consisting of several movements. Apart from such popular dance movements (two renaissance dances, three waltzes), this publication also provides users with more extensive character pieces at an intermediate level. In movements like, for example, Evening chimes, Hobgoblin, The shepherdess and the cuckoo and March, the original content provided by the editors together with the music helps players to find the appropriate character for the musical performance, and thus to bring the music closer to both the players and the audience.
