- Accordion Arrangements*
Composer, Mark Greathouse, has posted several of my arrangements of his compositions on SheetMusicPlus.com. The SMP page for each piece includes a description, preview of the score, and a recording.
Copy Cat — Quartet for 2 Violins, Flute and Accordion is by turns lightheartedly playful, somber, and meditative. Variations touch on jazz, gypsy, and orchestral themes. The accordion provides rhythm and low register support. The violins draw out the themes often quite hauntingly but also with a section of lighthearted pizzicato. The flute part alternates between high melodies and mid-range countermelodies. This arrangement of Copy Cat is an intermediate piece that is entertaining and fun to play.
*It’s strange to be mentioning ensemble music when “Zoom” meetings have replaced in-person rehearsals. We are, however, looking forward to better times in 2021.
