Alberti Sinfonia a 3

Alberti Sinfonia a 3

I don't know a great deal about this Sinfonia a 3! It's in three movements Allegro - Adagio - Presto and scored for 2 violins and Cello.  It would work for a string ensembles that does not have any viola players or for string trio.

Wood Full Speed for String Orchestra

Wood Full Speed for String Orchestra

Full Speed for String Orchestra needs to be played in a very dirty way.  Nothing in it is pretty. Think Metallica rather than Mendelssohn.  On paper this piece looks harder than it is, all the triplet rhythms kind of look a little messy on the page but once pupils are passed that  it's actually an easy piece...

Wood Ballade for String Orchestra

Wood Ballade for String Orchestra

There is no reason behind this little ballade for string orchestra!  I was just doodling, well time wasting to be honest and a couple of hours later this piece was finished.  It did it's job perfectly - it stopped me doing something I should of done.  Maybe I should have called it "Procrastination"! Hope you enjoy.

Wood "Can't Wait" for String Orchestra

Wood "Can't Wait" for String Orchestra

This piece was composed as a small, short, fun encore piece.  It has a driving rhythm all the way through it by the cellos and basses.  The tune is divided up between all of the violins and violas and it does require some third position work.  We had great fun putting this piece together and I hope you will too...

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.

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!
