Franck Violin Sonata, Mvt. 1
Cesar Franck (full name Cesar Auguste Jean Guillaume Hubert Franck) was a Belgian composer and virtuso organist. He only wrote one violinsonata, but it is one of the best-known sonatas today. He composed the Violin Sonata in A major for violin and piano in 1886 as a wedding gift for his friend and famous violinist Eugene Ysaye. This is the complete first movement from this sonata.
A few notes on the parts and instruments:
- The standard ("std") parts are the original parts and are designed to be played together.
- The alternate "a" parts, if present, are raised one octave (8va) and can be substituted for a standard part to accommodate the higher instruments listed. They should work as long as they are above the other parts.
- The alternate "b" parts, if present, are lowered one octave (8vb) and can be substituted for a standard part to accommodate the lower instruments listed. They should work as long as they are below the other parts.
- For example, using parts 1, 2, and 3 together is definitely ok. Using parts 1a, 2, and 3b together is probably ok. Using parts 1b, 2, and 3a together might not work well.
- Part ranges are listed in concert key, where C4 is middle C.

This is an arrangement for violin and cello. The violin part is mostly identical to the original solo part, but there are some sections where it needs to help cover some of the piano accompaniment (these sections are indicated in the music with smaller notes, but should still be played).
