[PDF] Toselli, Enrico - Serenata

Post by mordent » Fri Jul 06, 2012 1:06 am

Here is my arrangement of the famous Serenade by Toselli.It was one of his very early works and subsequently turned out to be by far his most popular work.,indeed he is nowadays only remembered for this piece despite writing many other varied works. It is a very romantic melody and when played as a violin solo it is invariably played with much rubato. I have therefore arranged it as such for guitar. As always the fingering is as I play it and may be unconventional to some. As an Orchestral work it is one of my all time "easy listening " pieces----I can think of nothing more soothing than listening to a full lush Orchestral arrangement of this lovely melody on a cold Winter evening beside an open fire,a favourite dog nestling at one's feet and a full glass of a good Merlot to hand!

Thank you very much, Mike.
This is one of the pieces I like as much as you do, and I'm glad to have a fingered version now
besides a simplistic other transcription which has lost much of the piece's charm.

Thank you Mike (mordent) -- this piece is beautifully arranged and a pleasure to play. I wasn't familiar with Toselli, so thanks for introducing us! -- Ed

I personally love Serenade pieces; especially, the 2 pieces my mother used to sing as lullabies were Schubert's and this one of Toselli. While many people interprette Schubert's , I don't see much of arrangement for Toselli's one.

Thank you Mike for sharing your arangement and GeofB for asistance this newbie.
