Kreisler Liebesleid for Violin and String Orchestra

Kreisler's Liebesleid was composed along with two other "Old Viennese Dances" - Liebesfreud and Schön Rosmarin.  These three pieces have been the staple diet of violinists since they were composed in 1910.  Originally Kreisler published these three Dances as arrangements of pieces by Josef Lanner (1801 — 1843) but confessed to being the composer of these works after a reviewer told him off for playing some of his own works alongside "these pearls composed by Lanner".

Here is an arrangement of Liebesleid for violin and string orchestra.  I've added a little for bar introduction to "set the mood" but it can be omitted!

Hasse Sinfonie Op.5 No.6 in G minor for String Orchestra

Johann Adolph Hasse (1699 – 1783) was a well-known, loved and respected figure in his day. Like a lot of well-known figures, when he died, his music almost died with him.  Hasse was known as an operatic composer, he composed 56 operas but he also left us a few other works too.  Cello, flute, keyboard and oboe concertos and 6 sinfonie a quattro Op. 5. 

This G minor Sinfonia is the last of the 6 works and is full of drive and energy.  The opening Allegro takes your breath away, the middle movement could not really be called slow and the last movement races all the way to the finishing line.

Filtz Symphony Op. 1 No. 5

Johann Anton Filtz (1733 — 1760) was just 26 years old when he died!  In  his short time on earth, he studied law and theology at the University of Ingolstadt, was a cellist in the "Mannheimer Hofkapelle" and a composer of at least thirty-four symphonies, thirty concertos and a several chamber works.

Being a member of the "Mannheimer Hofkapelle" puts Filtz's compositions clear in the Mannheim school along with fellow composers Franz Xaver Richter, Carl Stamitz, Franz Ignaz Beck, Ignaz Fränzl, and Christian Cannabich.

His 6 Symphonies Op. 1 are all scored for strings and continuo and consist of three movement - fast - slow- fast.  

I can't find a recording of Filtz's Symphony Op.1 No.5 in F major or a modern edition of this work.  I do hope that you will find this work interesting enough to play and perform.  If you do perform it, I would love to hear a recording.

Paisiello Overture "La serva padrona" for String Orchestra

Imagine for a minute -  your contract is coming up for renewal, your employer is just about to celebrate their wedding anniversary and they ask you to organise the entertainment for the big party.  That's OK, you know you can do it under normal circumstances but they give you an impossibly short deadline to sort it out.  I don't know about you but I think I might panic!

Well, that's what happened to Paisiello.  The Grand Duke Alexander needed a new opera for his wedding anniversary and pure Paisiello had to come up with the goods.

Paisiello found a libretto, liked the story but needed it reworked.  So not only did he manage to get the libretto rewritten but he also composed some great music.

This Overture is just good old play!  I hope you enjoy.

Aubert Overture for String Orchestra

Jacques Aubert, also known as Jacques Aubert le Vieux was a composer and violinist of note. As a violinist, he was a member of the Les Vingt-quatre Violons du Roi  -"The King's 24 Violins".  This ensemble was originally founded in 1626 by Louis XIII and was made up of players that had an impeccable reputation and had to be Roman Catholic.

Aubert was a member of this ensemble from 1728 to 1752, as well as being the first violinist at the Paris Opéra.  

Aubert composed several instrumental works as well as operas and ballets.  This Overture is taken from his 5th Suite and is a good example of Aubert's style.  

It is scored for two violins, cello and harpsichord.

Sibelius Romance Op. 78 No. 2 for Violin and String Orchestra

It was always been common practice for composers to write smaller works as a means of increasing their income.  Sibelius was now different from many of his contemporary and composed a wide range of salon pieces.  Most of these were composed for the piano or violin and piano.  When asked by his daughter Katarina why he composed these small pieces, when he should be writing great works, he replied, "To provide you with bread and butter."

In 1915 Sibelius composed his four Pieces for violin and piano, Op.78.   This Romance is the second of these pieces and was also published for cello and piano.  

We must remember that Sibelius was a violinist! Sibelius was 50 in 1915 and in his diary he famously admitted of "Dreaming of being twelve years old and a violin virtuoso".  This Romance is far from being a virtuoso piece but it is filled with charm.

Tessarini Aletamento Armonici No 1 for String Orchestra

Carlo Tessarini was born in Rimini in 1690.   His exact date of birth is not known.  In 1716, the German composer and violinist Pisendel came across some of his violin concertos.  Some of these concertos later were published  by Le Cene and Walsh as part of his 12 Concerti Opus 1 set.

Tessarini's Allettamenti Armonici consist of 6 sinfonias for string orchestra.  The first of these is in D minor and is in three movements - Allegro - Andante - Presto.
