Peasant Song (viola duo)
Title: Peasant Song
Composer: Felix Mendelssohn, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Two Violas
Printout: 2 pages
Note: This is one of Mendelssohn’s many piano pieces that transfer readily to strings. Lyric in character, it is excellent music for quiet occasions. It is also easy enough to be performed by intermediate level students. The two instruments trade voices occasionally to give the piece a conversational quality.
