Title: To a Wild Rose, from Woodland Sketches, op. 51 no. 1
Composer: Edward MacDowell, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Two Violas

Note: Arguably one of MacDowell’s most celebrated compositions, To a Wild Rose was initially discarded by the composer and retrieved from the fireplace by his wife, who persuaded him to finish and publish it. This setting for viola duet is suitable for many purposes.
