Notes & Comments

Brilliant either as cello quartet or cello orchestra, top two parts are treble clef and difficult while lower two are somewhat less so. This arrangement has been recorded by the Saito Cello Ensemble of Japan and played by them at the World Cello Congress in St. Petersburg, Russia. It was played by the Saito school’s youth cello ensemble, the Toho Cello Ensemble, at the World Cello Congress in Baltimore in 2000.

Recording is Allegro following the slow introduction. {audio}Rossini|C-9_Rossini.mp3{/audio}

Rare 18th and 19th Century Chamber Music including the Cello

In the late 1970s I acquired two bound volumes of duos for violin and cello. As a cellist, I was attracted to them since they were “duos concertante”, with the cello part equal to the violin part. There were 58 duos, with all the violin parts bound in one volume, and all the cello parts in the other.

I am offering many (but not all) of these duos in both facsimiles of the original (no scores were printed) and new performing editions by myself with scores and parts done on Finale. These editions will attempt to correct errors, resolve inconsistencies in dynamics, articulations, bowings, etc. However I will not supply such markings where there is no reason to do so, leaving that to the whim of the performers.
