Søffren Degen’s arrangement of an Andante by Haydn for violoncello and guitar is one of ten pieces for violoncello and guitar by this composer edited by Jens Bang-Rasmussen and now published by Tecla Editions.
Here are some notes on it, by Jens Bang-Rasmussen.
Andante (Haydn), for violoncello and guitar
An unbelievably fine and sophisticated transcription of the second movement of Haydn’s string quartet op. 33 no 6. Degen transcribes music very freely, as did most of the romantic composers. He transcribes the original music into a style of his own. As in all Degen’s transcriptions, the guitar part is for the seven-string guitar.
