We aim to get back to you within the hour, during shop hours (please see store details), to confirm your reservation. If you do not hear from us then please resend the request.
The Cello Concerto No.1 In A minor has an original structure as well as an attractive and challenging solo part.
Although it is through-composed, it is easily divided into three movements. The main theme from the opening reappears several times in each of the sections, which gives the piece a unity and sense of organic wholeness.
This edition includes:
- A compact disc containing the complete performance of the concerto in digital stereo
- A second digital stereo version of the concerto minus the soloist, indexed for ease of practice and performance
- Selected slow-tempo versions from the accompaniment for practice purposes
- An authoritative performance edition of the solo part, newly engraved and printed on high-quality ivory paper
