ALBUMS & CDs

Zither Australia Publications are currently offering several CD and album packages; the albums have musical arrangements for zither players:

1. LET'S START - The Concert Zither - in English

We have a great NEW book for absolute beginners.This book is written for people who would love to learn the concert zither, but don't speak German to use the existing Zither Tutors, or live where there are no zither teachers. It is a modern book written in plain English with a minimum of theory, clear notation and diagrams and with many stimulating, familiar tunes.

Whilst it is based on sound pedagogy, it makes use of modern technology and comes with a carefully produced Studio quality play-along CD to show how each exercise sounds on the zither. Each one of the 78 exercises/songs is a separate track with a one bar count-in to make it easy for the beginner to play along. The tracks have been recorded with the metronome to encourage “playing in time” right from the start.

4. Heidergger Album - Great Zither Duets

This album contains 6 melodious duet pieces suitable to intermediate players - Zither l & ll.
6 klangschöne Duette fuer 2 Zithern.

Josef Heidegger lived in Vorarlberg/Austria. His Zither Duets are musical gems because 1st and 2nd parts compliment each other; the 2nd part is a meaningful accompaniment, often with different rhythms, not just an easier version of the first part.

Josef Heidegger kam aus Vorarlberg/Östrreich. Seine Duette fuer Zither sind besonders klangschön, weil 1. und 2. Stimme sich ergänzen. Die 2.Stimme ist eine sinnvolle Begleitung, of mit unterschiedlichem Rhythmus, nicht nur eine leichte Version der 1.Stimme.

Duet Album
All pieces on the CD printed in 2 separate books; one for Zither l and one for Zither ll.
Noten zum Mitspielen in zwei Heften für Zither I and Zither II.
