Little Serenade in G Major for String Trio, Op.32
There is not a lot of information available about Hermann Spielter (1860-1925) who was born in the German town of Barmen. He studied piano and composition and was active in Schwelm for a number of years as a teacher and composer. Some time around 1900, he emigrated to New York, where he spent the rest of his life. In America, he continued to compose and held several conducting positions as well as continuing to teach.
The Little Serenade was composed in 1889 while he was still in Germany. It is a lovely, short work in one movement, posing no technical difficulties. As such, it is very suitable for amateurs but would make a fine encore in the concert hall. The trio, though intended for Violin, Viola and Cello can also be played by a trio consisting of 2 Violins and Cello as Spielter provided a second violin part which could be played in lieu of the viola if desired.
