ISBN 825860105. Key: C major. Transcribed by Eugene Levinson.

Originally written for cello and orchestra by Joseph Haydn and transcribed by Czech virtuoso David Popper, there is some confusion as to who should be fully credited for Concerto in C. This edition by N.Y. Philharmonic Principal Bassist, Eugene Levinson, strives to take attention away from the musicological debate and instead works to encourage both students and teachers to consider this work as part of their curriculum for the benefits it brings to the educational progress. Few works in the solo repertoire can develop the specific skills demanded by the highest echelons of the bass art form, in the way that this concerto does. This work is both technically and musically challenging and should be an essential part of the studio program at any major music institution.
