Blandt bjergene, op. 19 (“among the mountains”), for violoncello and guitar
This is an outstanding composition for cello and guitar. Truly romantic program music, very inspired by the program music of Coste, and always with a touch of his teacher J. P. E. Hartmann. As in all Degen’s compositions, the guitar part is for the seven-string guitar.
