Young cellists (and their teachers and parents) will have fun taking this musical promenade through the zoo. Animals from A to Z help young learners to master cello techniques and skills in a spirit of fun. Tiny ants form caravans with minuscule footsteps, a lion roars in two-part counterpoint, a seal frolics in a liquid 6/8, and two little donkeys draw attention with daring glissandos. The enclosed piano accompaniment contributes with a wide range of sounds that guarantee fun in lessons and applause during performances! Not for an absolute beginner, but good for a year one or two student.
The theme from this award-winning score was originally recorded by Joshua Bell with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Arranged here by the composer for violin and piano accompaniment. Intermediate/Advanced.
This Barenreiter edition is based off of a manuscript set of parts that was discovered in the 1980s. It includes corrections in Beethoven's hand, which clarify many ambiguities in slurring and dynamics as well as numerous wrong notes in the inner voices. It offers performers a fully reliable music text impeccably laid out so as to meet the needs of performers.
