Here is a unique duet arrangement (for CELLO solo with PIANO accompaniment) of the ever-popular holiday classic "Jolly Old Saint Nicholas." The CELLO plays the melody for the first two verses and then for the third verse, the PIANO plays the melody while the CELLO adds broken-chord harmony. The first verse is flowing and legato in the key of C major, but then for the last two verses, it promptly transitions to the key of G major and a more upbeat rhythm with staccato.

All notes for the CELLO are playable in the first position making this arrangement an excellent choice for early-intermediate string players. The PIANO accompaniment is written for an intermediate player. This fun-to-learn arrangement is a welcome addition to the repertoire for beginning cello students and suitable for recitals or just some family fun around the piano during the holiday season.  

The purchase price includes a 5-page combined score with both CELLO and PIANO parts on each page plus a separate 1-staff score for the CELLO solo (2 pages).

This arrangement is one of the 10 songs in the collection "Holiday Classics (A Collection of 10 Easy Cello Solos with Piano Accompaniment)."
