Chamber ensemble Violin, piano - Moderately advanced


Composed by Pablo de Sarasate. Edited by John Craton. Chamber music. A romantic piece for violin and piano. Late Romantic; Contemporary. Score and part. Duration 5 minutes. Wolfhead Music #WM532. Published by Wolfhead Music (WF.WM532).

The story is told (although likely apocryphal) that Sarasate, who never married, once proposed marriage to the youthful Marie Lefébure-Wély. Marie declined, Sarasate wrote "Les Adieux," and he never mentioned her again. Whether or not this is a factual account, it is known that Sarasate dedicated the work to Mlle. Lefébure-Wély and that it is a very sentimental example of some of his early work. The present publication is edited by John Craton after carefully consulting the 1899 Janin Frères edition.
