I started a thread, Spring Flowers - (mostly things about Daffodils/Narcissus) not meaning to talk about music, but of course I ended up doing a quick search... had NO clue there was any violin music related to Daffodils or Narcissus, but there is! 

 

Narcissus - by Scottish composer James Oswald (1710-1769), played by Ian and Meryl Thomson!

 

Narcissus - by American composer Nevin Etherlbert (1862-1901), played by Magyari Imre

 

FREE Nevin Etherlbert version of Violin sheet music to PRINT & play-along at 8notes.com - Narcissus - ALSO, links to the VIOLA & CELLO notation, as well as transposed versions!  

 

 

Dainty Daffodils (PDF sheet music) - composed by Walter E. Miles (1915). 

Good Parlor Music!

...feel free to add your favorite Spring Flower Tunes!

One more Daffodil I think is beautiful for violin...

 

 

Light and Daffodils cover by Yuuki. 

 

Mystic Messenger is a kind of Korean mobile-chat game (also in English) I have never heard of before!  "Another Story" is a 'mode' (offshoot?) of Mystic Messenger.

In Mystic Messenger Another Story, players assume the role of a new character, who finds themselves thrown into Rika’s Fundraising Association (RFA). Unlike the original game, this story explores an alternative universe where the events unfold differently. It offers a fresh perspective and a completely new narrative to experience.

Each character has their own unique story, and it’s up to you to uncover the truth behind their motivations, relationships, and pasts.

The game’s storyline is divided into multiple routes, each focusing on a specific character. Through a series of chatrooms and text messages, players interact with the characters and make choices that influence the direction of the story. Mystic Messenger Another Story is known for its immersive storytelling, keeping players engaged and yearning for more.

FORGET-ME-NOTS!  

...kinda cool to find music to play this way! 

Forget Me Not (composed by Larry Redican) & The Famous Ballymote - played by Nathan Gourley and Laura Feddersen. 

 

I think this is the sheet music (Internet Archive) - by Walter E Miles (born 1885 Grand Rapids, Michigan!).  Quite the Parlor Music!

 

 

Forget Me Not Waltz - composed by Don Pettigrew, played by Patti Kusturok. 

 

Forget Me Not, Op.22 (link to Imslp) - composed by Allan Macbeth, played by Latchezar Dimitrov.  The Imslp link also has a Cello & Piano score.

I finally found who composed this particular (really beautiful) 'Forget Me Not' - Heinrich Lichner (1829-1898, Germany).  Most of his compositions appear to be for piano, but sound lovely on violin.  Think this will go on my 'to learn' list!

 

 

Short Version of 'Forget Me Note' (Lichner) notation at musescore.

Thought I share some 'Spring Flower' sheet music & video links for tunes I'm either working on, or considering, for stringy's 'Maggie In The Wood' Party

This one I started practicing & really fell in love with it!  "Iris Waltz" by Belgian musician/composer Guido PiccardIris Waltz Notation & midi on The Session

 

10a40dfecb611fdaf81a62ba8f4dc6f7.jpg

Belgian group 'Naragonia' plays this beautiful "Lilac" - I think it may be a 4/4 time An Dro (En Dro) rhythm.  The Session has it notated as Lilac Waltz, but I don't feel a 3/4 'waltz' or even a hanter dro type 6/8... but I'll have to listen more before trying it.  "Lilac" & "Dave The Watchman" in this video.

 

 

76587f4ad0a88cce0772aaa0025f3817.jpg

"Violet's Waltz" notation on The Session - nice tune! 

"Newfoundland Spring Jig" notation on The Session - very Irish sounding jig in Edor!

The Finnish "Metsäkukkia Waltz" (notation on The Session) translates to "Flowers of the Forest/Woodland Flowers" & is beautiful (The Vals - how complicated can it be? Nordic Thread).  I've only played this thru once.

Stringy mentioned 'Jack-in-the-Green' - it's folklore customs & festivities are associated with 'May Day'

I stumbled upon 'Magpie Lane', a group of musicians, dancers/singers - with Mat Green as their fiddler. 

Magpie Lane's "The First of May"Notation for this lovely tune on The Session - The First Of May (Barndance) 

 

 

Magpie Lane does a really nice "Jack-in-the-Green" (song) & "Jack's Alive" (instrumental).  'Jack's Alive' starts at 2:15 - Jig & Reel versions at The Session. 

 

Mat Green
founder member; appears on all [Magpie Lane] CDs

Began morris dancing with Bampton in 1972 and has become one of the key figures in the current generation of dancers - he recently celebrated 25 years as Squire of Bampton Morris. He has been playing fiddle since the age of 14, both for the morris, and for many years with the Woodpecker Band, possibly Oxfordshire's most popular barn dance band. He is surely one of the finest exponents of the traditional style of English fiddle-playing, giving dance tunes tremendous vigour and vitality. Mat also plays in a duo with Andy Turner.

One last 'May Day' tune I want to share!

"May Day", by the Fitzgeralds. 

 

Ford Glass played a beautiful "Blackberry Festival Footrace Jig" for the Maggie in the wood - Spring Plant PartyThere are some amazing Blackberry/Blackberry Blossom, Strawberry/Strawberry Blossom, Mullberry Apple Blossom, etc... tunes notated on The Session

 

 

I have fallen in love with this "Apple Blossom Reel" (in Emix!) played by Caroline Keane, along with "The Flood on the Holm"!  Notation on The Session - Apple Blossom (reel)!  I've learned some great tunes from folks who play the squeeze box!

Fresh-Daffodils-Narcissus.jpgImage Enlarger

 

Kevin picked me some smaller little Daffodils & Narcissus, today! 

Every once in a while I have to learn a couple of cheerful tunes, so these are some on my list! 

"Flowers of Spring" Hornpipe & "Flowers of Ballymote" (The Sunny Banks Reel) - played by Josephine Keegan.  Links are for notation on The Session. 

 

I really like this waltz & hornpipe - only found them both played together on the squeezebox, the notes are crystal clear.  Alston Flower Show Hornpipe - notation on The Session. The Flowers of Ashgill Waltz - PDF, duo Violin notation with chords (from the Mumpers Community Ceilidh Band)! 

 

"Vårblommor" Vals (Spring Flowers - Swedish) - composed by famous Swedish accordionist, Carl Jularbo and played by Skogsbylasse on harmonica

ABitRusty posted a great link to the Trala "Wildwood Flower" (in the More Sheet Music Thread) - an American Folk Tune. 

Trala is a GREAT Beginner Resource of notation, with associated exercises & midi backing/play-along support.

I should have some PEONIES blooming by the end of this month!  Of all the fragrant flowers, some varieties of Peony fragrance are my favorite! 

Here's some 'peony' inspired pieces. 

 

 

Rebecca Behrends composed & plays her Violin "Peonies"... wish she would've chosen a peony image for the cover of her 'Fabulous Flowers' album!

I've really enjoyed listening to the Rebecca Behrends album - it's inspired me to take a closer look!  Some sound like maybe VIOLA played, or just tuned down (?)

Other beautiful 'Spring Flower' (besides 'Peonies' in prev post) Violin pieces on Rebecca's

'Fabulous Flowers' album (don't miss there are Summer Flowers, too): 

Daffodils 

- if you've been practicing your scales, you'll love this one! 

Columbines 

  My Columbines should be blooming this month! 

Lilacs  

  ...and my Lilac tree has started blooming! 

Forget Me Not 

- love this one, too! 

The Tulip Trio Series on the Fabulous Flowers album: all with Rebecca Behrend (Violin), Rebecca Belliston (Piano) and Jennifer Ormond (Native American Flute).  ALL 3 pieces are delightful! 

The Tulip Trio: I. Budding Babies   

The Tulip Trio: II. Bouncing Butterflies  

The Tulip Trio III. Blooming Beauties 

 

...this album is another GREAT REASON TO START LEARNING BY EAR!

Unfortunately, my TULIPS have dwindled down to only a few this Spring, but here's some 'Tulip' inspiration to play something on any of your string instruments! 

 

"Tulip Time", composed by Grant Flick - arranged & performed by Westbound Situation. 

 

 

 

"Tulpen Uit Amsterdam" ("Tulips From Amsterdam" - Waltz). PDF notation for the basic melody to Tulips From Amsterdam - it's an octave higher than I would play it.  You can view a whole string quartet score HERE.

 

This one cracks me up - does everyone who plays Double Bass have such a great sense of humor?  "Tulips" by Jay Leonhart!  He composed & plays this song about the tulip crisis in Holland in 1620?!
