  • August 20, 2012 Great Collection

    I am enjoying the collection a great deal, especially since it has two CD's one with the cello/piano and one with just the piano accompaniment. I just wish it also included the piano accompaniment as sheet music, so that I could play with a person also. Has anyone...

    auditory learner. There are several pieces however that are in alto clef and require skill in reading and playing alto clef. I have enjoyed playing these pieces and learning them in this way.

  • May 07, 2008 Very nice music for your students

    Excellent compilation from baroque to Popper of beautiful pieces for the cello (some rare gems); very suitable for the aspired student to begin the study of phrasing and interpretation. The edition is superb, very well edited.
