Sicilienne and Rigaudon

By 

Fritz Kreisler

Kreisler's "Sicilienne and Rigaudon" is a captivating violin and piano composition, inspired by the Sicilienne and Rigaudon dance forms. Composed in the early 20th century, these pieces beautifully capture the essence of these dances. The "Sicilienne" exudes a graceful, pastoral quality associated with the Sicilian folk dance, while the "Rigaudon" is characterized by its lively and spirited nature, drawing from the traditional French Baroque dance. Both pieces remain beloved in the violin repertoire, cherished for their evocative and charming qualities.

Sicilienne and Rigaudon

by:

Eric Gratz

This work in two parts (the baroque-inspired Sicilienne and the fast country dance of the Rigaudon) harkens to an earlier era but introduces a contemporary twist and allows personal liberties to be taken. Eric Gratz explains how he interprets the Sicilienne rhythm, and where rubato is appropriate. The Rigaudon is a perpetual motion of facile sautillé and fluid slurred string crossings. Gratz provides a few practice strategies for addressing the difficult spots and identifies some musical elements to watch out for: creating dynamic ripples, adhering to accents, and being smart with bow division.
