1st Minuet

SKU: FM131 Categories: ,


Originally published for string quartet in about 1892, these three minuets were dedicated to figures in Puccini’s life. Beautifully lyrical, with interest in all parts. The first is in a fairly complex key (concert Gb major) and requires neat semiquaver playing from all players. The second is simpler, and features a central trio section just using the upper three parts. The third minuet is particularly attractive, and features interesting cross rhythms which build the music to a glorious climax. Again using the full range of each instrument and needing musical playing, these are suitable for players of grade 7/8 standard and above
