Product details

The Pizzicato Pluckers was written for a standard string quartet of 1st and 2nd Violins, Viola and Cello (Double Bass) as a light entertaining piece but can be augmented and played by a larger string ensemble. It emphasises the use of 'pizzicato style' playing throughout the piece with some interesting arpeggio work for the Viola.
