Hummel's “Potpourri” for Violoncello and Orchestra op. 95 is part of every violoncello player's core repertoire, especially in its shortened version, the “Fantasy.” Sprinkled with quotes from operas by Mozart and Rossini and framed by spirited, newly composed passages, the “Potpourri” fills a gap in the small repertoire of the classical-early romantic period. Sebastian Hess has provided fingerings and bowings for the solo part. And it goes without saying that the “Fantasy” version can also be played using our edition. Hummel produced this version in addition to the original edition for viola. The version presented here was out of print for many years, but we have now made it available again.
