Offenbach Musette Transcribed for Cello and Guitar

Edited by Valter Dešpalj

Composer: Jacques Offenbach
Instrument: Violoncello
Edited By: Valter Dešpalj
Instrumentation: Chamber (Cello and Guitar)
Pages: 7 including the violoncello and guitar parts

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.
