Celibrated Minuet arr. violin & viola

This intermediate version for violin and viola playing pizzicato features the only first minuet of Boccherini’s Minuet and Trio from his String Quintet Opus 11 No.5. In this two part arrangement the musical texture has been simplified into melody and accompaniment. The ornaments have been written out in full to assist players although I would suggest that they are perhaps omitted in the early stages of learning the piece. The movement requires a very consistent approach which will be a challenge to players inexperienced in performing music from this era. A tempo of 100 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the minute is recommended.
