Vivement, from Sonata in C, op. 8 no. 6 – L’Italienne (violin duo)
Title: Vivement, from Sonata in C, op. 8 no. 6, L’Italienne
Composer: Nicolas Chédeville, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Two Violins
Printout: 2 pages
Note: Nicolas Chédeville was well known as a performer on the musette, a small bagpipe-like instrument for which most of his music was written. His compositions are generally light in character, charming and tuneful. In this movement, the two instruments cross registers and exchange motifs almost as if in conversation. Both parts can be played on flute or oboe.
