          GB Retired professional teacher/cellist.
          Attractive folk-style pieces with a contemporary edge, not too difficult for the cellist, rather more challenging for the pianist, fun to play.
          None, really. Some cellists might have liked a more challenging cello part.

          Good tunes and arrangements [excepting perhaps the pizzicato one]. Cello part fairly easy but you need a good pianist.
