Adagio

From String Sinfonia VIII


by
Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy
(18091847)

Mendelssohns Sinfonia VIII for strings was completed on November 27, 1822. In a departure
from his previous sinfonias, Mendelssohn omitted violins from the second movement, scoring it
instead for three viola parts plus bassi (cello and bass). The AVS edition of this Adagio
movement is available in two versions: Mendelssohns original scoring (AVS 011) and a version
for viola quartet, with a Viola 4 part replacing the bassi (AVS 011a). The Viola Quartet version
has been transposed up a half step to C minor to better preserve the register relationship
among all of the parts.
