Notes and comments

Notes & Comments

8 Celli.  This famous work for two opposing brass choirs is very effective for a cello octet or cello orchestra. It provides material for performance by a group of cellists with varying abilities with several parts in treble clef and most of the rest in bass clef. This arrangement was played by the cello orchestra at the 1996 American Cello Congress in Tempe, AZ. Score and 8 parts.  Ideal for group with varying capabilities.

This arrangement has been played all over the world; there is a YouTube video of the ten cello UMSL Cello Choir.

Recording is of a student cello orchestra, near the end of the work. {audio}Gabrielli|D-4_Gabrieli.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.
