Comment

Probably this is either a discarded or alternative movement of a contemporary string quartet or an exercise.

It looked easy to transcribe (only one page) and it had a catalog number I liked, so I went ahead and transcribed it; doing so, I found out it was a charming piece. I took a liberty in bar [3] replacing the F natural in the original with an F sharp, because it sounded much better to me. I hadn’t listened to the original prior to transcibing.

Trivia

The catalog number I assigned to this transcription is the same as the catalog number of the original (tbpt86 <-> D.86) (yes, it was on purpose ^^  )
