Description

August Suck (ca. 1830-1921) pronounced “Sook”, came to the U.S. in the 1850s. With cellist Wulf Fries, he published a cello tutor in 1879, reissued in 1901. In 1881 he became a founding member of the Boston Symphony. The undated Concerto in D Minor for Cello and Piano came from an archive of Suck manuscripts.  See Music by August Suck for a fuller biography of the composer/cellist.

This is a short but complete 3-movement work with continuous fast, slow and fast sections. It is an advanced student concerto, with passages in tenor and treble clefs; though not extremely difficult, it will provide interesting technical challenges. There is no orchestration that I know of.

This is a downloadable arrangement. Buy it now and you can download the PDF directly to your computer. To receive printed folio copies (extra charge for postage), ask for them in the comments section of the order.
