To a Wild Rose, from Woodland Sketches, op. 51 no. 1 (violin duo)
Title: To a Wild Rose, from Woodland Sketches, op. 51 no. 1
Composer: Edward MacDowell, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Two Violins
Printout: 2 pages
Note: Arguably one of MacDowell’s most celebrated compositions, To a Wild Rose was initially discarded by the composer and rescued from oblivion by his wife, who persuaded him to finish and publish it. This setting for violin duet captures the piece’s elegant simplicity and is suitable for many uses.
