Edwin Lemare: Moonlight And Roses (String Quartet) - Score

Books | String Quartet

Catalogue No: BRO10120S
Composer: Edwin Lemare
Format: Sheet Music | Score
The haunting melody which forms the chorus of this song started life (in 1892) as an Andantino for organ by Edwin H. Lemore. Its opening phrase had an even earlier birth, however, bearing as it does an uncanny resemblance to that of the Adagio of Mozart's Hunt quartet. This may explain the arranger's musical treatment, his original marking in hot pursuit, and the dedication to the celebrated Pizza Express quartet at Dean Street, Soho, London; for in medieval times this area was farming and hunting land, it's name deriving from the old hunting cry of "So-ho!"
