and here is Ludwig Spohr's rendition...he was a bit of a prude, this is evedent in most of his compositions, except this one! Very cute, short, and sweet...he wanted to be Beethoven :-)~

As loooong as we're on the topic of cadenzas...this is a little of subject but check out this Vieuxtemps cadeneza from his op.18 for the 4th string only. Anyone not familiar with the op.18, this is the Norma fantasy, the G string is tuned to middle C for this one. That's right everyone, 4th string only, no cheating!

Thank you Jon!
Fun music as always!

You don't happen to have a fun one for Viotti 22? :-)

From Jonathan Frohnen
Posted on July 3, 2006 at 05:57 PM
I sure do :-)~ I'll scan them in this weekend...for the Viotti #22 I have Wieniawski, David, Alard...and the standard Joachim and Ysaye that IMC uses.

I think William Henley might have gone a little overboard in his cadenza writing...he offers two different cadenzas for the first movement of the Beethoven...the first is 4 pages long and quite virtuosic, the 2nd is 5 pages and is also quite virtuosic...his slow movement cadenza takes a full page, and the 3rd movement I have posted for everyone already :-)

Also for the Brahms concerto he offers two cadenzas...the first being 7 pages long and the second being 5 pages. Both of course very very virtuosic, Henley must have been something else!

While these are quite flashy, they remain quite tasteful :-)~

Regarding Spohr, I read somewhere that he didn't like Beethoven's works? (hope I wasn't mistaken)
From Jonathan Frohnen
Posted on July 3, 2006 at 07:06 PM
Hi Kris...while I have a very minimal interest in the music of Spohr, I make the comparison (teasingly) only because of the amount of "serious" works which Spohr composed.

Jonathan, would you mind posting a link to Joachim's cadenzas, if you have them?
From Jonathan Frohnen
Posted on July 3, 2006 at 07:19 PM
Sarah do you refer to the Beethoven cadenzas or the Viotti? If Viotti, the edition I have is still in copyright...if the Beethoven, I do indeed own the first edition and can scan this for you this weekend.

Hi Jonathan sorry for my bad english can you share joachim`s cadenzas? in my country (Venezuela) is too hard find this sheet music and im really interesting. Thanks.

Of course, if no one beats me to it, I will post right here this weekend.

Btw, has anybody ever played Schneiderhan's cadenza for the Beethoven? Is it any good?
From Mattias Eklund
Posted on July 4, 2006 at 06:51 AM
I've played it.
It is fun, but I don't think it suits the concerto oddly enough...
It sounds better on the piano in my opinion!

-Pa, I wouldn't mind THAT salary ;-)

My favorite is Milstein's Cadenza for the Brahms. I think it works better musically then the original. I could listen to just the cadenza for hours and never grown tired.

does anyone have a copy of the Fritz Kreisler cadenza in the (1st movement) of beethoven's violin concerto in D major? If so, can you please email it to me: K.M.Bruno@gmail.com

Thanks

Jonathan,

Did Joachim write three versions of cadenzas? I've seen a score of his cadenzas somewhere, but quite different from the ones you have,especially the first movement. It's easier

From Kris Tan

Btw, I forgot to thank you for the Joachim cadenzas. They're lovely, I especially like the second one. Not very popular, but nice.

Thanks
