Fritz Kreisler (1875–1962) was considered one of the greatest violinists of all time.  Many of his works are known as “pastiches,” works composed in the styles of other composers. Kreiser wrote Tempo di Minuetto in the style of Gaetano Pugnani. You may know that Kreisler also composed his well-known Praeludium and Allegro in the style of this eighteenth-century Italian composer/violinist.
In this arrangement of this work, the solo violin part has been integrated into the string orchestra. The parts have been cleverly adapted so that all string parts have thematic interest. It is written in a basic minuet-and-trio form which will offer many teaching points on style and historical perspective.
