Saint-Saens' life-long admiration of the cello led to some of his finest compositions. This edition, by celebrated cellist Steven Isserlis and Saint-Saens scholar Sabina Teller Ratner, brings together a collection as varied as it is appealing for Solo Cello with Piano Accompaniment. This volume includes some of Saint-Saens' best-loved pieces such as Allegro Appasionato and Le Cygne alongside his previously unpublished Gavotte.
Primary sources have been consulted in preparation of the edition, which includes performance notes by Steven Isserlis and an informative introduction.
The solo cello part is also included on a separate insert.
