Title: Tak (Gratitude), op. 68 no. 2, from Lyric Pieces
Composer: Edvard Grieg, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation; Violin; Viola; Cello

Note: The lyric opening of this piece is contrasted by a second section with highly chromatic chords that leap across the register of the instruments. “Gratititude” is one of the most inventive of Grieg’s beloved Lyric Pieces.
