Fesch Concerto for 2 Violins and Strings Op.3 No.1

There's not a lot of information to be found about William de Fesch (1687- 1761)! A virtuoso violine player and composer, has 13 Opus numbers attached to his name and was a member of Handel's Orchestra in London around 1746

This is the first of six concerti from de Fesch's Op. 3 set.  It is in 3 movements Allegro - Large - Spirituoso.

Fesch was influenced by both Handel and Vivaldi, which is evident in this concerto.

Corrette Concerto Comique No.18

We don't know much about Michel Corrette.  There is a list of positions he held.  He was a popular teacher with many pupils.  Some critics think that his arrangements are better than his original compositions! He left us several musical instruction books which give us insight into contemporary playing techniques

Corrette composed 25 Concerto Comiques based on popular tunes of the day.  He arranged these tunes for three melody instruments and continuo.  The version of his Concerto No.17 is for three violins and continuo. 

I've corrected as many of the errors in the score as I could find and tidied up some of the articulation and slurs.

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.
