Beck Allegro for String Orchestra

Beck Allegro for String Orchestra

Franz Ignaz Beck was a German violinist, composer, conductor and music teacher who spent the greater part of his life in France.  Beck is an important representative of the second generation of the so-called Mannheim school. His fame rests on his 24 symphonies that are among the most original and striking of the pre-Classical period. He was one of the first composers to introduce the regular use of wind instruments in slow movements and put an increasing emphasis on thematic development. 

Here is the first movement of Beck's Sinfonia Op.1 No.3 in A major.  The sinfonia is in three movements but I thought that the second and third movements where not very good!  However, I did like this first movement so I hope you find it useful!

Graun 2 Arias for String Orchestra

Graun 2 Arias for String Orchestra

These Arias is the fifth movement of a ten movement Suite for 2 Oboes, 2 Bassoons and Strings.  

With a little rejigging I've arranged it for String Orchestra.  

I have to say that I don't know a great deal of music by Graun but after a little bit of research I can say - he's good! I do hope you find this useful.

Graun Chaconne for String Orchestra

Graun Chaconne for String Orchestra

Graun may not be well known today but he did study with J.G. Pisendel in Dresden and Giuseppe Tartini in Padua. As a teacher he taught the violin to J.S. Bach's son Wilhelm Friedeman!

This Chaconne is the ninth movement of a ten movement Suite for 2 Oboes, 2 Bassoons and Strings.  With a little rejigging I've arranged it for String Orchestra.  

I have to say that I don't know a great deal of music by Graun but after a little bit of research I can say - he's good!  I do hope you find this Chaccone useful.

Zelinka 2 Minuets for String Orchestra

It's believed that Zelenka's music was rediscovered by Bedřich Smetana.  Smetana even rewrote some scores from the archives in Dresden and also introduced one of the composer's orchestral suites in Prague's New Town Theatre festivals in 1863.

These two minuets are from his Simphonie à 8 concertanti ZWV 189 for 2 oboes, bassoon and strings.  This arrangement will work equally well for String Quartet or String Orchestra

You can hear the complete Simphonie in the above YouTube video.  If you want to hear the minuets you will find them at 20:24 in the video
