It is impossible to imagine today's cello lessons without the works by Jean-Baptiste Breval (1753-1823). This sonata is the first of the Six Sonates non difficiles pour le violoncelle, Op. 40 (1795). Because of its comfortable tonality and technical simplicity, it remains popular among cello teachers and students. As a performance piece, the sonata can be accompanied either by a second cello, as in Breval's original version, by piano, or even by both instruments.

About Schott Student Edition

The Schott Student Edition gathers instrumental works for music lessons providing a unique and varied repertoire resource including standard teaching works, lesser known pieces which are perfectly suited to lessons as well as to student concerts and competitions.

The repertoire is divided into levels 1-5, from very easy to difficult, and includes works from the Renaissance up to modern performance pieces. Each title is graded, from very easy works for beginners up to demanding pieces for more advanced students who are preparing for further study or examinations.

Every work in the series has been carefully selected and edited by experienced music teachers. The editions also contain a wealth of information on the pieces as well as useful advice on studying, rehearsing and interpreting the works. The first titles to be published in the Schott Student Edition series contain works for violin, violoncello, flute, clarinet and recorder. Further editions are in preparation.
