  • April 06, 2008 Another Sunny Boccherini Piece 4 Cello

    I am a Boccherini fan from way back. I bought this edition to replace one I had acquired used, and decades ago. This has now either crumbled completely or been missplaced. I think Prof. Stutch's candenza treatments add value to the work. Even though one or two of the...

    transitional chord progressions sound more modern to me than Boccherini, I am quite enjoying practicing this edition music.

  • August 29, 2006 A Musical Joke

    This piece is a happy, bouncey work for cello and piano, with a catchy opening theme, which is repeated several times throughout the work. Boccherini wrote this work as a musical joke, a fun, over-accentuated piece that was written to make fun of works composed by others during that...

    era. Rondo offers a wide variety of dynamics, modes, and techniques, and it great fun to play. The player must be aware of the contrasts needed to be acheived in the playing of this piece, and maybe listening to other works by Boccherini would help the player to understand the depth of variety needed. Boccherini was an excellent composer, and this piece he wrote really shows off the instrument.

  • June 29, 2003 What a Rondo should be

    A nice opening theme that the rest of the piece is written around. Requires knowledge of treble clef, double stops, and thumb position. A great piece to be played at a recital, because it's exciting and people will remember it.
