Pieces with beginning thumb position also provide a challenge to the more advanced 'cellist as well as a wonderful, musical opportunity for the novice to explore this technique. An entire generation of professional and amateur cellists was brought up on 'Solos for the Cello Player; now its successor, 'The Cello Soloist,' is not to be missed. This is an album that you will live with for many years. And if you are new to the MMO experience, this is a perfect way to begin a long and rewarding relationship.

    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.
