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.

Sitt Reverie Op.75 No.2 For Viola and Piano

Sitt Reverie Op.75 No.2 For Viola and Piano

Hans Sitt was a Bohemian violinist, violist, teacher, and composer. During his lifetime, he was regarded as one of the foremost teachers of violin. Many of his pupils worked in orchestras and conservatories across Europe and North America.

From 1884 to 1921 Sitt held the position of Professor of Violin at the Leipzig Conservatory where he wrote several important studies for violin and viola. Sitt also played the viola in the Brodsky Quartet of Leipzig from 1883 to 1895 along with Hugo Becker, Julius Klengel, and founder Adolph Brodsky. 

The Reverie is the second of three pieces op.75 for viola composed by Sitt.  The three pieces in the set comprise of an Elergy, Reverie and Barcarolle.  This Reverie is a beautiful lyrical piece with a more animated middle section. A good piece to bring out the warm tone of the viola.

Beethoven Turkish March for String Orchestra

The Turkish March (Marcia alla turca) from The Ruins of Athens was first used in Beethoven's "6 Variations on an Original Theme", Op. 76, of 1809.    Beethoven used this theme in 1812 as part of the incidental music to a play by August von Kotzebue which premiered in Pest.  This march sparkles with energy and would be a great addition to any concert program, with or without the percussion parts!

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!

Dancla Theme and Variations for Violin and Piano

Dancla Theme and Variations for Violin and Piano

This Theme and four variations in G major by Dancla does not have an opus number.  It is marked in it's original Whipple publication as "Easy and Brilliant.  Well, it is easy(ish) but it certainly sounds brilliant!

In the Whipple score the piano part did not have the violin part printed with it.  In this new edition the piano score now has the violin part so the pianist can follow it!

I do hope you find this score useful.

Graun Sinfonia for String Trio

Graun Sinfonia for String Trio

This Sinfonia WV A:XII:6 by Graun was originally for two violins, viola and cello.  As the first and second violas mainly played in union throughout, it did not take a great deal to make it work for string trio... 

The Sinfonia is in three movements - Allegro-Andante-Allegro.
