Some of today's best alternative string players and teachers demonstrate rock, jazz and fiddle styles on the strings for fellow violinists to appreciate, in Alternative Strings: The New Curriculum by Julie Lyon Lieberman (1574670891, $24.95), a fine book/cd package reflecting the author's three decades of experience as an alternative string teacher and performer. Alternative Strings: The New Curriculum is a fine guide for teachers, conductors and musicians alike: over two dozen genre styles are presented, with supportive writings, a large discography, and plenty of musical examples featured on an audio cd profiling fourteen top players. A full-length Hasnssler classic cd is included in David Hurwitz's The Mahler Symphonies: An Owner's Manual (1574670999, $19.95). Novice classical music listeners and Mahler experts alike will appreciate Hurwitz's in-depth details on how each work is arranged, how the parts relate to each other, and what the listener will hear in the Mahler symphonies. An outstanding detailed description backed with listening.
