Comments: In the style of Pugnani. Originally for Violin and Piano.
Description: Fritz Kreisler (1875-1962) was considered one of the greatest violinists of all time. He was also known for composing a number of pieces for violin to be played as solos for encores. Many of them are known as pastiches, which are works composed in the styles of other composers. He also wrote operettas, a string quartet and many cadenzas which are the most often played by violinists today. Tempo di Minuetto is in the style of Gaetano Pugnani. Kreisler also composed his well-known Praeludium and Allegro in the style of this eighteenth-century Italian composer/violinist. Tempo di Minuetto is a work for violin and piano which is a standard in the solo repertoire. In this arrangement, the solo violin part has been integrated into the string orchestra. The parts have been cleverly adapted so that all string parts have thematic interest. It is written in a basic minuet-and-trio form which will offer many teaching points on style and historical perspective. The arranger suggests that the director and students become acquainted with the original work for solo violin and piano to familiarize them with the style intended by Kreisler. This will help them recreate these styles in their orchestra performance.
