Grandmother’s Minuet, from Lyric Pieces op. 68 (string quartet)
Title: Grandmother’s Minuet, from Lyric Pieces, op. 68
Composer: Edvard Grieg, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, Cello
Printout: 8 pages
Note: Grandmother’s Minuet is a well-known work by Grieg, and here it has been creatively arranged to make full use of the coloristic possibilities of a string quartet. Some of the cross-rhythms are tricky, so be on your toes. This piece is great to pull out when you are getting weary of the same old stock repertoire.
