This is a beautiful neo-romantic work. A substantial piece at 20 minutes, the sonata, alternates between lyrical writing and music with a scherzo-like feel that is both lively and animated. It is written in one movement that flows extremely well with an intertwined cohesiveness between the cello and the piano. Advanced Level.

Melodious Etudes Selected from the Vocalises of Marco Bordogni
These vocalises are considered to be among the most musically appealing studies in the vocal repertoire.

In these etudes the student can work on phrasing, tone quality and musical line. Sonority and richness of tone are key elements in mastering these etudes. Presented are fifty-four etudes with a variety of keys and rhythms that will explore the range of the instrument. Multiple types of bowing opportunities are also covered.

Beriot's Six Spanish Airs, originally written for two violins, are a
delightful addition to the duet repertoire for Viola and Cello. A
contemporary of Mendelssohn and known as the father of the
Franco-Belgian violin school, De Beriot composed masterpieces that will
enchant a new generation of string players!
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.
