Lasse i Lyby was a fiddler in the southern part of Sweden. He was poor and was known for tuning down the strings on his violin to make them last slightly longer. He played this little waltz so often that it now bears his name. A waltz is also a dance in 3/4 time – a strong beat followed by two weaker. Please note, that we made this arrangement with a very slow tempo in mind. Imagining the deep forests of Sweden and the lonely Lasse with his fiddle, we decided to slow down this waltz to the point of disintegration. Traditionally the Scandinavian waltz is played at a considerably faster tempo.

The Danish String Quartet is a classical string quartet with a passion for Nordic folk music. They've brought their unique arrangements of Scandinavian folk tunes to the concert stage and recorded them on a highly successful CD. Now, due to popular demand, sheet music of these meticulously crafted arrangments is being made available for the first time in a carefully prepared edition. We hope you enjoy it.
