More than a hundred years ago small get-togethers and domestic
recitals were garnished
with jewels from the classical repertoire, foxtrots, waltzes,
tangos, medleys, and opera and
operetta arrangements for small groups of instruments. “Salon music”
of this sort was
extremely popular. In the early twentieth century it moved into the
concert hall, luxury resorts,
and places of entertainment. Today the salon has vanished and the
belle époque and
fin de siècle are things of the past, but salon music is witnessing
a renaissance.

Small ensembles are mushrooming to savour this tuneful music and
present it to a large and
appreciative audience. This edition for Melody I (voice or violin),
Melody II (violin or flute),
Piano, and Bass (or cello), with chordal notation for guitar, offers
timelessly beautiful
nineteenth-century melodies such as Salut d´amour or the Barcarole
from Tales of Hoffmann,
combined with hits from the early twentieth century.


- Salut d´amour (Elgar)

- Spanish Dance # 2 (Moszkowski)

- Jalousie (Gade)

- Parade of the Elves (Noack)

- Barcarole (Offenbach)

- Medley from “Die Fledermaus“ (Potpourri: Strauss)
