Rondeau for violino piccolo, bassoon and strings in C


Fux was primarily a composer of church music and a great theorist, yet he composed nearly twenty operas. This delightful Rondeau is to be found in manuscript in the Dresden State Library. The tutti Rondeau theme provides a framework for ten variations for the solo bassoon and violino piccolo (a smaller violin, tuned a minor third higher than usual).

from notes by Roy Goodman © 1999

Fux était avant tout un compositeur de musique religieuse et un grand théoriste, mais il a pourtant composé près de vingt opéras! Il existe un manuscrit de ce charmant rondeau à la bibliothèque nationale de Dresde. Le thème tutti du rondeau sert de base à dix variations exécutées au basson seul et au violino piccolo (petit violon accordé une tierce mineure au-dessus de la normale).

Fux war in erster Linie ein Komponist der Kirchenmusik und ein großer Theoretiker, dennoch komponierte er an die zwanzig Opern! Dieses entzückende Rondeau ist als Manuskript in der Dresdner Staatsbibliothek zu finden. Das ganze Rondeau-Thema liefert den Rahmen für zehn Variationen für Solofagott und Violino piccolo (eine kleinere Violine, die eine Terz höher als die Violine gestimmt ist).
