    Absolutely fantastic piece! I love the amount of emotion you can easily give throughout this piece. Definitely one of my all-time favorite compositions. It is so completely beautiful to listen to and very fun to play. Anyone who plays cello must play this at some point. Yes, it is...

    tricky to play right, but it is definitely worth the time to practice for any sort of performance or audition.

  • May 27, 2008 A true gem of the repertoire.

    Any ambitious cellist who can find a sensitive pianist should attempt this lovely work. Fauré is often underestimated - his language is quite new, yet within traditional forms. This work has immediate appeal for performers and listeners alike.

  • February 12, 2007 Bah!

    This elegy thing was disgustingly terrible! I absolutely hated it! Where's the passion? I think that this piece is just ultimately a horrible example of French literature and cello music, and needs to be burned! Incredibly detatched and one dimensional

  • December 09, 2004 Absolutely Beautiful!

    I was introduced to this piece by my college professor, and I think it is absolutely magnificant. It is a wonderful piece to work on a nice wide vibratto. This would be especially good for a funeral or memorial service. You can just feel the emotions of the bereaved. I...

    would recommend this for any serious cello player.
