A piece full of charming simplicity, evoking an atmosphere of olden times – this is how Offenbach's Musette could be described. It plays easy on the cello as well as on the guitar, with its simple accompaniment in the agreeable key of A minor. A listener is particularly amused by the section where the cello plays a happy tune using only natural harmonics, with the guitar providing a drum-like accompaniment.
