I decided to revisit one of my older string quartet arrangements. As you can probably guess, it is the K 545 sonata. This time, I had a harmonic analysis to help me stay more true to the original harmony. I decided, for now at least, to have the sixteenths in the second movement be played by the second violin. The countermelody method that I went right for in my first draft is tricky, especially to keep consonant with both the melody and the harmony. So, as I try to figure out a good countermelody, I have the sixteenth notes in the second violin in this draft. Hopefully, I will figure out a good countermelody so that I can put the sixteenth notes into the viola, and not have to do octave alterations as you can see I did in certain places in the second movement. Until then though, the sixteenths will be in the second violin, with the viola harmonizing the bass line.
Here is the second draft of my string quartet arrangement of K545:
I'm new to this community. I uploaded my second prelude for a string quartet. Check it out, and I hope you like it!
I uploaded a scherzo for solo violin , check it out:
It's really horrendous !
Hope you enjoy!
~FEEDBACK IS M
What instruments do you play?
Hope y'all are having a great day!

FEEDBACK IS MORE THAN WELCOME AND MUCH APPRECIATED!
Hi, I recently completed two movementa of a classical suite that I am currently composing for the String Orchestra. I intend to play it in my school's String Ensemble in the future. Any feedback and thoughts are deeply appreciated. Thank you!
i've been meaning to ask this for a while, but what is patrick doing in the group icon?
If you listen to this score it will be stuck in your head for the rest of the week
and probably fill you w/ memories from your childhood
I am arranging Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata for a string quartet. I might add a double bass if I think it is necessary, but so far, no issues with it being a quartet, at least not in the first and second movements. Now I'm arranging the Presto Agitato and as if it wasn't hard enough with the need to smoothly transition from the viola to the violin in those sixteenths, if I keep the interval relationship, the notes are going to be too high. I could get away with this octave displacement in the previous 2 movements(With the first movement, I basically did this octave displacement for the entire bass line to fit it into the cello), but now, the octaves the sixteenths are in are crucial to getting the right sound out of the Presto Agitato.
There are 2 things I can think of as to how to get the Presto Agitato to sound right, one of which keeps the instrumentation, and another of which keeps the original octaves.
Option 1: Add Double Bass
This would keep the original octaves, and I could have it play the bass line and have the sixteenths start in the cello and rise upwards to the viola and second violin.
Option 2: Move bass line to Viola for first measure of each arpeggio run
This would keep the instrumentation I have going of a string quartet and for everything except the bass line, the original octaves would be kept as well.
Which one of these 2 options do you think would be better? Any other suggestions?
NOTE: I'm only asking about the arpeggio runs, the scales and Alberti bass are easier to arrange.
I know I do.
