Fischer : Gramachree Molly (with variations) : Violin II
Composer: Johann Christian Fischer (1733 - 1800)
Forces: Ob./Fl. Hn.Hn.Vn.Vn.Va.Vc.Kbd
Fischer was an oboist, colleague of J.C.Bach in England, and son in law (and portrait subject) to Thomas Gainsborough. This set of variations was published as the third movement of Fischer's Concerto no. 7 in F for Oboe "or German Flute" (the publisher's alternative). This edition includes a figured keyboard part, but the realisation is a condensation of the string parts, enabling the piece to be performed by Oboe/Flute and keyboard alone.
The provenance of the tune is shrouded in uncertainty with both Irish and Scottish claims to be the primordial version.
Violin II: 0.50 euro for unlimited copies
