Brolga Music

Acting on a plea from his three string-player sons, Graeme Young embarked several years ago on a set of arrangements for string quartet. The three volumes featured melodies from Light Opera, Popular Classics, and music for Special Occasions and were first released under the title "Fiddling for Fun." From these sets, this popular selection has been made, expanded to include a Violin 3 part to replace or support the Viola, and an optional Double Bass part to allow for performance by string orchestra.
