Five Duos – Rossini, No. 4 Menuetto (viola duo)
Title: Five Duos, No. 4 Menuetto
Composer: Gioachino Rossini, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Two Violas
Printout: 2 pages
Note: This minuet (misspelled “Menutto” in the original) sounds very much like a German dance. Since it is known that Rossini’s composition teacher owned copies of several works by Mozart and Haydn, it is quite possible that there is some German/Austrian influence.
This minuet is also available in the Bargain Bundle Five Duets by Gioachino Rossini(viola duo).
