Erlebach (1605 - 1648) was a prolific German composer. His compositions include orchestral and chamber music, operas, cantatas, Masses and oratorios. Most of his works (over 1000 compositions)were destroyed in 1735 during a fire in Rudolstadt.This caused Erlebach’s music to be almost completely forgotten. Only 70 compositions (about 7 percent of his working output) survived, some only in handwritten manuscript form, which later had to be transcribed. Much of his posterity is dependent upon published editions of his works. This piece is based on a work originally composed for violin, viola da gamba and cello.', '
A charming, intermediate baroque trio arranged for three violins. Ideal for intermediate students, adult amateurs and professionals. Only the first violin part ventures briefly into third position - the other parts can be played in first position. Rhythmically fairly easy, with some trills and turns.
