Menuet for Flute and String Quartet
- Great for teachers
From the Publisher
Polish born pianist and composer Ignace (Jan) Paderewski entered the Warsaw Conservatory in 1872. Strict curriculum requirements forced him to play many instruments, including trombone, flute, viola, and clarinet. He was appointed teacher of piano at the Conservatory in 1887, and his performances worldwide, including a Carnegie Hall debut on November 17, 1891, were consistently triumphant. Paderewski was considered the richest living musician in the world before the first World War but gave away most of his money in the service of Poland. Minuet in G was written in the 1880s as part of his set of6 Humoresques for piano, op. 14, no. 1. This version for flute and string quartet was inspired and edited by flutist Don Bailey and orchestrated by Adam Manijak of Poland.
