I’ve always loved Grieg’s Lyric Pieces, and always thought they could translate well into a different idiom besides solo piano. This is my attempt at arranging Griegs first set of lyric pieces for string quartet.

I. Arietta. This movement is very short, but very legato and soft. The viola and 2nd violin parts should be interpreted perhaps like a harp part, make it appear as though the notes are bleeding into one another. The melody is simply in the 1st violin part. The player should put a lot of expression into the melody to keep it interesting.
