Description

Born in Erfurt, the composer Edward Mollenhauer (1827–1914) achieved success in America as a soloist and teacher. His best-known pieces for young violinists are “The Infant Paganini” and “The Boy Paganini”. Both appear here in their original version for violin and piano. Also available separately, for the first time, is a transcription for cello and piano by Christoph Sassmannshaus.

The Mollenhauer fantasia “The Infant Paganini” is a charming introduction to early virtuoso techniques. It calls for bowing techniques such as detache, legato, spiccato and arpeggios over three strings. Players are also expected to play harmonics and pizzicato.

This showpiece (BA10691) can be accomplished by young violinists who can play in first to third position and who are nearing completion of the Sassmannshaus Early Start on the Violin, volume 4.
