To a Wild Rose, from Woodland Sketches, op. 51 no. 1 (cello duo)
Title: To a Wild Rose, from Woodland Sketches, op. 51 no. 1
Composer: Edward MacDowell, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Two Cellos
Printout: 2 pages
Note: Rescued from the fireplace by MacDowell’s wife, To a Wild Rose became one of the composer’s most beloved compositions. It’s lyricism and warm harmonies are ideally suited to string instruments, and this setting for two cellos is quite pleasing to the ear.
