Liverpool Organist, composer, lapsed strings
- It is one of the classics of the repertoire.
However I am not a cellist myself, and I bought this as a Christmas present for a talented young cellist in the family, an honorary granddaughter. She is not up to sight-reading it, understandably, but will work on it at her leisure.
As a lapsed viola player I used to play this piece in transcription. Looking through this present score I see no obvious problems, other than the purely technical need to be able to switch between not merely two clefs but three (treble, tenor and bass).
- Potential durability of the paper; I expect my scores to last a lifetime, and for that reason I prefer them to have a heavier grade of paper for the outer covers. This one does not.
Otherwise no problems.
