Francesco Molino’s Second Grand Trio Concertant op. 45 for violin or flute, viola, and guitar, follows on from his Trois trios op. 4 and his Grand Trio Concertant, op. 30. All three of them are now available in Tecla in digital, in modern editions, re-engraved, score and parts.
You can see the first part of this score FREE here.
Here is a splendid video of this Second Grand Trio Concertant op. 45, performed by Olavo Tengner Barros on flute, Jean-Loup Lecomte on viola d’amore, and Mário Carreira on guitar:
This trio op. 45 begins with a long allegro. Then a romance, adagio, really beautiful, just as was the romanza in the Trio op. 4 no. 1. Finally, a rondo with lots of energy. In this video the romance begins at 8:56 and the rondo begins at 12:25. Throughout the work as in op. 4 and op. 30 there are plenty of exchanges between the viola and the guitar, and the guitar has a full part to play, not just providing a bass but participating as one of three equal players.
56 pages (32 pages score plus 8, 8, 8 pages parts). New re-engraved edition, score and parts.
Read the complete preface to the edition. It has some interesting (I hope) ideas about fingering.
It is possible to order the complete set of all Molino’s trios with guitar: the Three Trios op. 4, the Grand Trio Concertante op. 30, and this Second Grand Trio Concertante op. 45, all as digital downloads in the new re-engraved edition, score and parts.
