Title: Complete Parts for Cello from the Classic Masterpieces, Published by Edwin F. Kalmus Music
Variations on a well-liked theme, mainly
from contemporary operas, were extremely popular at the end of the 18th
century. Even the young Beethoven made several contributions to this
genre. We do not know of any concrete occasion for the composition of
the three cycles of Variations for Violoncello and Piano, they are on
two themes from Mozart's The Magic Flute and one from Handel's oratorio Judas Maccabaeus.
The number of reproductions at that time does, however, reveal that
they were very popular right from the beginning.
Romances, Op. 36 & 67. Edition for Cello and Piano.
Camille Saint-SaŽns composed his two Romances for Horn for two of the
most respected French horn players of the time: Opus 67 in E major from
1866 is dedicated to Henri Chaussier; Opus 36 in F major from 1874 was
written for Henri Garigue. Despite the illustrious recipients, they are
not virtuosic showpieces but - as the term Romance suggests - short "Songs without words" that fully savor the typical romantic sound of the
horn. Alongside the orchestral version, Saint-SaŽns also prepared a
piano accompaniment for chamber music performances. The first editions
also had an alternative part for cello, on which this edition is
based. Urtext edition with marked and unmarked string parts.
