Scène Champêtre (Country Scenes) (string trio – violin, viola, cello)
Title: Scène Champêtre (Country Scenes)
Composer: Gabriel Allier, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin, Viola and Cello
Printout: 8 pages
Note: Originally scored for a range of different possible instrumentations, Scène Champêtre is well suited to strings. Like most such idylls, it reflects an image of country life that exists more in the imagination of urbanites than in the reality of rural populations. Nevertheless, it is appealing and accessible, well suited to light concert or gig use. The violin part is playable on flute or oboe.
