Divertimento No. 5, Larghetto and Marcia (unaccompanied violin)
Title: Divertimento No. 5, movements 2 and 3
Composer: Bartolomeo Campagnoli
Instrumentation: Unaccompanied Violin
Printout: 2 pages
Note: Campagnoli was a classical era violin virtuoso who wrote prolifically for the violin. His 7 Divertimenti, op. 18, were intended as pedagogical pieces to facilitate playing in the “orders” or positions; one was composed for each of first through seventh position. The fifth, from which these movements are taken, is to be played entirely in fifth position. While much of the opus is etude-like, several movements, like these, are quite musical and suitable for concert use.
