In addition to using it for cello ensemble, string quartet, string trio or string orchestra, the two books can even be combined, giving groups with an uncommon scoring the possibility of ensemble playing. Alternative parts are available on the CD-ROM. Detailed explanations on the pieces and on the used playing techniques together with PDF, audio and video files make this material a method for string instruments that covers a broad spectrum of popular music.
Complementary videos showing playing techniques can be found on YouTube.

“The writing reflects experience and insights gained through years of actively playing and teaching many levels and ages of string players. It has been wonderful for me to hear Gunther playing this material with his students in Cologne. These pieces are exciting to play in real life and in real time. I cannot recommend these books highly enough!”
