Thank you for checking out my String Quartet arrangement of “Mona Lisa,” made famous by Nat King Cole. This arrangement can also be performed with a String Trio, since the 2nd Violin part is optional. This tune has such a romantic feel that it naturally lends itself very well to strings. Violin 1 and Viola get a shot at the main melody, harmonizing each other in turn. The dynamic swells bring the whole group together to make one cohesive unit.
This is just one of my many special arrangements. Check out my full listing on Sheet Music Plus! I am always adding new items for String Duo, Trio, and Quartet. One thing that sets my arrangements apart from others is that I fit all of my parts on 2 sheets of music. This makes it so the songs can fit into a binder, without the need for flipping pages!
Another great thing (for multi-instrumental arrangements) is that I include cue lines on each part, so that every player in the ensemble can see one other person’s music at the same time. This is so amazingly useful and has saved countless performances in the past. If someone skips a beat or misses a measure, you can now see where they are and reconnect! This also helps with sight-reading and keeping the group together in general.
