I don't normally think of myself as a "classical" violinist, but when I write music, I don't end up with "typical" fiddle tunes. This one has a bit of a baroque bent to it, but I like it. It is in the key of G Major, and I introduce a theme and include three variations. It is in the form of a round, where each of the three violin parts play the theme initially, then play the variations in turn. Please take a listen and let me know what y'all think. I've also included the full score, as well as the individual parts. Enjoy!
I'm glad that you enjoyed it. I was taking another look at it, and I was repeating the same voices a couple of times, so I decided to make a change. Each of the violins plays the theme then the two variations, after which it repeats. In other words, you'll get a chance to hear the theme, then the theme and the 1st variation, then the theme and the 1st and 2nd variations, then the 2nd and 3rd variations, then the 3rd variation by itself. There are a couple spots with dissonance, but I think it sounds pretty nice. I've attached the sheets and audio file of this second arrangement.
I absolutely adore this.. thanks for posting.
I can picture many happy events for this song... the before gathering at a wedding.. or people arriving to many happy events. Maybe even a graduation. My imagination runs wild.
Great composition... maybe my favorite of yours so far.
Thank you thank you and thank you for sharing... maybe.. some day I can play it.
