Serenade for violin and piano, Op 91

1851; for piano and violin or cello; published in 1857 with a dedication to Monsieur James Wittering of Amsterdam

The Serenade, in simple A-B-A form, is a straightforward and unremarkable piece of salon music with a pretty melody. Accessible to the gifted amateur, it surely would have delighted contemporary audiences. It was published 1857 and dedicated, like the Trio No 1, to ‘Monsieur James Wittering (of Amsterdam)’.

La Sérénade, en simple forme A-B-A, est un morceau simple et quelconque de musique de salon doté d’une belle mélodie. Accessible à l’amateur très doué, cette sérénade dut sûrement plaire aux auditoires de l’époque. Elle fut publiée en 1857 et dédiée, comme le Trio n° 1, à «Monsieur James Wittering (d’Amsterdam)».

Die Serenade steht in schlichter A-B-A-Form und ist ein unkompliziertes und unauffälliges Salonstück mit einer hübschen Melodie. Zugänglich für talentierte Laien, wurde es vom zeitgenössischen Publikum sicherlich erfreut aufgenommen. Es wurde 1857 veröffentlicht und, ebenso wie das Trio Nr. 1, „Monsieur James Wittering (à Amsterdam)“ gewidmet.
