Bohm Perpetuo Mobile for Violin and Piano

I like the music of Carl Bohm! My pupils like the music of Carl Bohm!  His publisher Simrock loved the music of Carl Bohm too as they made a small fortune from his compositions.  It is said that Simrock used the profits from Bohm to provide the capital to publish music by Brahms. 

It is amazing to think that Bohm is not really known much today outside the world of violin teachers and young aspiring violinists.  Yet without him would we have had the music from Brahms?  

Here is a delightful Perpetuo Mobile from a set of six small pieces.  I'm sorry, I don't know if there is an opus number to them!  This piece starts as it means to go on - fast.  Having said that, it is mainly played in first position with the odd bit of third position here and there.

I hope you enjoy.

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.

Saint Saens Dance Macabre for String Orchestra

Danse macabre, Op. 40 was composed in 1874 by French composer Camille Saint-Saëns. It started out song for voice and piano based on an old French superstition of "Death" appearing at midnight every year at Halloween. 

Saint-Saëns expanded and reworked the piece into a tone poem, replacing the vocal line with a solo violin.

Benes Rondoletto for Violin and Piano

Benes Rondoletto for Violin and Piano

I can't find out a great deal about Benes!  What I do know is that this Rondoletto is a really good piece.  It is all playable in first position, has a catchy tune and has a couple of triplet passages that lay well under the fingers of a young violinist.  It will be one piece that I'll be adding to my teaching list.  Hope it's helpful.

Boisdeffre Reverie for 2 Cellos and Piano Op.55

Every now and again you come across a composer that you don't know and a piece that you just can't understand why you haven't heard it before!  Well, for me, that composer is Boisdeffre and the piece is his Reverie Op.55 for viola d'amour, strings and harp.  I guess it might not be surprising, with a combination like this, that it's not played every day.  

YouTube, being the amazing site it is, has a beautiful recording of this piece.  Here, you will find the sheet music of an arrangement for 2 cellos and piano which I hope you find useful.

Cui Perpetuum Mobile Op. 50 No. 12 for Violin and Piano

I was really taken with the YouTube performance of Alard Nocturne for Violin and Piano that I used with the post for the sheet music that I had prepared.  In the video there was a performance of this piece by Cui.  I had not heard of it before and I really liked it.  So here it is!

This Perpetuum Mobile comes from a set of pieces Op.50 entitled Kaleidoscope. These piece take a poetic look at salon music of the time and this piece, number 12 is a charming little show stopper that takes just over a minute to perform!

This Nocturne is the first of a set of fifteen pieces in the form of studies.  This is a beautiful piece in second position that covers a wide variety of finger positions.  I didn't think that I would find a YouTube video of this piece but I was wrong!  Please listen to this lovely performance of this very charming piece.

Hollman Mazurka for Cello and Piano

Hollman Mazurka for Cello and Piano

Hollman's cello music is not really played much these days!  It's a shame because he composed some really beautiful pieces.  This charming little Muzurka is from a set of four easy pieces for cello and piano.
