Moonlight Sonata?
« on: Dec 28, 2008, 08:22:00 AM »
Does anyone have ABC or tab or sheet music or a midi for Beethoven's Moonlight sonata transcribed for violin? I have a violin + piano version but It's just the very trebliest notes, with piano for the bass, and I don't know a pianist. :(

Virtual sheet music have one - www.virtualsheetmusic.com - which comes with mp3 backing files for the piano part. Not seen the arrangement so don't know what it is like though.

What are you looking to do with it? The piano arrangement can be used for violin, playing the melody line as written. You're never going to get the bass notes in with the melody, it's close to (if not completely) physically impossible to play the entire piece on the fiddle: just in the first measure the bass is holding whole-note octave C's- one below the range of the violin and one a fourth above the low G. You can actually play that higher C, but you need it for the melody as an eighth note for the second or third note of the piece.

A good version of the piano composition can be had free here:
