As a prestigious composer of the late 18th century, Luigi Boccherini
's (1743-1805) Rondo
, transcribed for the Cello by Paul Bazelaire,
contains many features which continue to make the composer's music popular and loved to this day.
Known for his courtly, gallant style, Rondo,
originally composed for Violin and Harpsichord, clearly exemplifies these qualities through the 2/4 time signature, flourishing Cello lines and evocative, chordal and rhythmic Piano accompaniment. Moreover, syncopation rhythms and ornamentation heard throughout the piece create further excitement. All of these musical elements combine to create a highly enjoyable piece for the Cello repertoire. In addition, the clear print of separate Cello and Piano parts in this edition of Rondo
add to this irresistable purchase for budding cellists.
