Arranged for String Quartet (medium-difficult grade) by Carlo Martelli. Parts only.
Broadbent & Dunn's Classic String Quartet Collection. Duration: 4 min. In the early 1890's, whilst on holiday in Bavaria, Elgar composed several pieces for chorus and keyboard for a group of musicians he met at the inn in which he was staying. He later orchestrated three of the pieces that were published as 'Three Bavarian Dances' - this arrangement is the second movement of that suite. This arrangement has been included on a CD entitled 'Dreaming' by the Pavao Quartet issued by Discrete recordings. For secondary schools, conservatories, colleges and professionals.\"Elgar's 'Three Bavarian Dances' were originally performed in orchestral form at the Crystal Palace in London in 1897. Their origin lies within songs Elgar wrote under the title of 'From the Bavarian Highlands', depicting a vacation taken by the composer and his wife in Bavaria in 1894. The second moderato movement 'Lullaby' is now available in an arrangement for string quartet. For the upper intermediate to advanced string quartet.\" News Notes May 2008
