A Violinists Musical Thoughts
An improvisation für violin solo in A-minor
|1st movement: Präludium largamente A-minor Tranquillo ma non troppo|
|I was motivated to write this piece
of music seeing the beautiful landscape of the southern Dolomites around Amlach near
Lienz/East Tyrol. The first picture: The impressive mountain range of the Spitzkofel with
the fast moving river Drau seen from the bridge Drausteg.
The Tranquillo ma non troppo is presented as such: The wind is playing with a ripe cornfield in front of the Amlach wood.

|2nd movement: Menuetto grazioso
|Menuetto grazioso is a bird concert in the Amlach wood. A hiker is walking through it, guitar in his hands. Being motivated by the tolling of the Chatholic church bells he plays the basic theme with the four beats, followed by a bird whistling the same theme, played by a violinist in flageolett. The pizzicati intimate the hopping of the birds. You can hear a cuckoo and the tapping of a woodpecker on a thin hollow tree.||
|Again a short intermezzo on the guitar, then the colloratura of the birds in the middle part with the magnificent Forituri of three to four octaves of a violin.|
|3rd movement: Allegro agitato
D-major Grave doloroso A-minor Lament with imitation of Balalaika
A group of Cossack musicians on holiday in Amlach are driving through the
wood on hourses and carts. Right at the beginning in the Allegro agitato you can hear the
horses in pizzicato, followed by the transition in the Largamente to the Lament in
A-minor. At first the violin plays solo, in the repeat the imitation of a Balalaika.
|4th movement: Choral
G-minor Maestoso religioso
Choral in G-minor
at a memorial service in the Amlach church. Also played is the Lament commemorating the
Cossack tragedy of 1st June 1945 in the Peggetz nears Lienz/East Tyrol.
|5th movement: Largamente
Allegro agitato Largamente
church the congregartion is being surprised by a thunderstorm in the Amlach wood. Dark
clouds appear, lightening flashes and the storm is moving the trees of the wood. When the
storm abates the people are calmed again with the pleasant melodies of the Largamente.
|6th movement: Finale maestoso Presto
A Finale in Presto, hail is setting in
and you can hear its rattling short notes. The thunderstorm in Largamente is followed by a
pizzicato, the main theme with the accords in the solo violin, which continues the melody
in tonal and atonal harmonies.
In this way the piece A Violinists Musical Thoughts" is completed in words, pictures and music.
