Does anyone know where / how to find decent orchestra accompaniment for Suzuki volumes 1, 2, 3 and for the Seitz concerti in vol. 4?

I just ordered String Orchestra Accompaniments to Solos Volumes 1&2, arr. Paul Schwartz, selected by John Kendall, published by Alfred. I got mine from the local Music Mart store. I am sure you could also order them off of Alfred’s site www.alfred.com

If I recall correctly (and if my research was correct at the time), the Seitz concertos aren’t actually written for violin & orchestra…. they are student concertos originally written for violin & piano.

Meaning: any orchestration has to be extracted from the piano part and/or re-composed by the arranger. The only arrangement I’ve ever found for sale is here: http://www.scoreexchange.com/scores/99304.html

Is there an arrangement for string orchestra for the Dvorak Humoresque?

Have a look at these quartet arrangements by Matthew Hindson.

Scroll down the page and you will find Humoresque in the first book.

Click on each instrument separately to download.

Robert Longfield has a good arrangement for String Orchestra. You can google it at lucks music.com. The website is amazing and gives you a recording and score to look at. Some of my students are doing it at their school right now.
