Divertimento No. 2 in F Major

Recommended Posts

This is my second attempt at a divertimento in the classical style. It's meant to be a light and enjoyable work for a small string ensemble (I tried to make it possible for either a quartet or a larger section). I'm primarily doing these divertimentos as exercises in improving my four-part writing. 

One of the unifying factors between the movements is a consistent emphasis on weak beats throughout the piece, although I may have gotten a bit carried away with this aspect. I also sneaked a few bVII chords in to a couple of the movements. Let me know what you think! Thanks for listening.

Very nice and upbeat! The witty humour reminds me of young Verdi.

Some accidental spelling seems wrong to me, movt. I and V especially.


Thanks! That's high praise.

I am a bit fuzzy on whether to use an augmented second or a minor third sometimes.. I have usually been spelling it as a minor third resolving into a major third, but I'm guessing that's wrong and it should be an augmented second resolving to the major third. 

Thanks again for listening! It's great to get feedback.
