Haydn Minuett for Violin and Piano

Haydn wrote his Symphony No. 94 "Surprise" in 1791 in London for the first of his visits to London. The premiere took place at the Hanover Square Rooms in London on March 23, 1792, with Haydn leading the orchestra seated at a fortepiano.

Haydn's music contains many jokes, and the Surprise Symphony includes probably the most famous of all: a sudden fortissimo chord at the end of an otherwise piano opening theme in the variation-form second movement. The music then returns to its original quiet dynamic, as if nothing had happened, and the ensuing variations do not repeat the joke.

This minuet and trio, is pretty quick and marks the historical shift away from the old minuet (at a slower, i.e. danceable, tempo) toward the scherzo; by the time of his last quartets Haydn had started to mark his minuets presto.

Wieniawski Gigue Op.23 for Violin and String Orchestra

Henryk Wieniawski was considered a violinist of great ability and wrote some very important works in the violin repertoire, including two technically demanding violin concertos. His L'École moderne: 10 Études-caprices is a very well known work for aspiring violinists. His Scherzo-Tarantelle, Op.16 and Légende, Op.17 are also frequently performed works. He also wrote two popular mazurkas for solo violin and piano accompaniment (the second one, Obertas, in G major), using techniques such as left-hand pizzicato, harmonics, large leaps, and many double stops.

The Gigue in E minor Op. 23 is the first of a set of three pieces - the other two being Chanson polonaise sans paroles and Rêverie-nocturne.  These three pieces where published in 1880 after Wieniawski died.

Here is a version of the Gigue for Violin and String Orchestra.
