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.
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.
Locatelli’s Sinfonia Funebre composta per l’esequie della sua Donna, che si celebrano in Roma or “Funeral symphony composed for the obsequies of his Woman, celebrated in Rome” was composed in the 1720s. The Sinfonia is in several movements and starts with a very scary first movement marked Lamento Largo e sostenuto.
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.
Drdla’s Souvenir, composed in 1904, was one of over 250 salon pieces that he composed. The Souvenir and his Serenade No. 1 are his two most recorded pieces today and are pieces that are worth learning.
Drdla was particularly known for his original themes and piano parts which make all his works worth a look.
Campognoli is mainly known now for his studies for both violin and viola. As well as these studies he composed several sets of duets. Here is the first duet of his Opus 14 set. It is in three movements and is all playable in first position.
