A collection of 10
entrancing, original pieces designed for a young cello ensemble (with piano or
CD accompaniment) in either a reading-based or Suzuki group lesson
environment. This collection enables players of different levels to
perform together---many of the pieces include parts for beginner,
elementary, and more advanced players, and can be played successfully in
different combinations. Includes reproducible cello parts and a 36-page
score. The CD features a full performance of each piece as well as
piano accompaniment tracks.
Since its premiere in 1873 this work has held an important place in the cello repertoire. Christine Baur's new scholarly-critical edition is based on a thorough examination of all the sources, including Saint-Saens' later orchestral version. The edition incorporates many articulation alternatives for the soloist, which are marked "ossia" above the solo cello line in this version for cello and piano.
This important new publication offers cellists not only an Urtext part, but also one with bowing and fingering; both parts have a fold-out page so that no page turns are necessary.
