Music for the Royal Fireworks, Minuets I and II (string trio)
Title: Minuets I and II from Music for the Royal Fireworks
Composer: G. F. Handel, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin; Violin 2 or Viola; Cello
Printout: 4 pages
Note: The music of Handel is essential for gig musicians, and movements from the Fireworks Suite are at the top of the list. The gentle Minuet I in D minor is followed by the boisterous D Major of Minuet II. This arrangement includes alternate parts for violin 2 and viola.
Audio sample includes beginnings of both minuets.
