Arietta for cello and piano was written in 1990 and premiered by Paul Brantley and Arlene Shrut in New York, May 1991. An aria for two, it opens with a quiet uncertainty, swells to a rhapsodic denouement, and fades away in requiescence. 7 min. Advanced.
This new edition is J.S. Bach's
arrangement of Antonio Vivaldi’s concerto op. 3 no. 8 from “L’Estro
Armonico”. Originally for two violins, arranged for Cello by F.W. Schneider. Includes piano reduction.
Like his father, Carl
Philipp Emanuel Bach wrote three sonatas for viola da gamba. These
sonatas can also be played very effectively on the cello; the fingerings
in the marked copies provide helpful suggestions.
Figured bass realized by Wolfgang Kostujak
