Mendelssohn wrote eight books of lyrical piano pieces, Romantic
miniatures designed to "sing" on a keyboard instrument without using the
human voice. His Songs without Words represent an entirely new kind of
19th century chamber music. Opus 30, No. 3 is adapted here in solo
instrumental arrangements for cello and piano accompaniment.
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.
