Violin
Composed by Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809). Instrumental Solo Part and CD. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3132).

Item Number: MO.MMOCD3132

ISBN 1596151617. The Bedford String Quartet - Soloist: Nicholas Milton, 1st violin; Ensemble: Robert Zubrycki, 2nd violin; Kathleen Foster, viola; Arthur Fiacco, cello.

Haydn's second quartet contains the famous 'witches' minuet' in which the violins, in octaves, lead with a rather spooky tune that is them imitated by the lower instruments, making quite an unearthly canon.

Contains a high-quality printed solo part and a compact disc featuring the quartet in split-channel stereo with the violinist on the right channel; then again in an accompaniment version minus the solo violin part.
