Title: Norwegian Melody, op. 12 no. 6
Composer: Edvard Grieg, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin; Violin 2/Viola; Cello
Printout: 4 pages
Note: This piece, from Grieg’s Lyric Pieces, has a spirited melody accompanied by bagpipe-like drones. The arrangement utilizes harmonics and open string fifths to reflect these characteristics. Not to be mistaken for Grieg’s famous Norwegian Dance, it has a more exuberant character.
This piece is also included in the Bargain Bundle The Grieg Collection for Two Violins, Set 1.
