Ten American Cello Etudes

By Aaron Minsky

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/ten-american-cello-etudes-sheet-music/3617077

Cello - Level D (difficult)
Composed by Aaron Minsky. Pieces & Studies. 24 pages. Published by Oxford University Press (OU.9780193858176).

Item Number: OU.9780193858176

ISBN 9780193858176. 12 x 9 inches.

Each of these etudes is a miniature evocation of an American place and mood, written to help cellists learn in contemporary styles of jazz, blues, folk, and more. Technique certainly won't be dull with these lively pieces, which are also admirably suited for recitals and encores.
