Alfred Earnshaw: Tarantella Op.44 No.4 For Cello And Piano

Books | Cello, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Stainer & Bell
Composer: Alfred Earnshaw
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
A highly respected Cello teacher and performer, Alfred Earnshaw counted among his peers such notable twentieth-century composers of music for young cellists as Adam Carse and W. H. Squire.

His Tarantella for Cello and Piano features on Children's Cello, the delightful collection of cello miniatures recorded by Steven Isserlis and pianist Stephen Hough on a recent BIS recording.

Earnshaw commanded a fluent, graceful idiom ideally suited to inspire beginners with real musical values, and the piece combines open-string and first-position playing with the flair and character of an impressive recital item.

        Great fun & very effective without presenting too many technical difficulties. It's also very useful as an early longer piece (the Cello part is a full page) helping to extend concentration & stamina.

        Think you or the tip, NickCello! This is realy a nice piece with a danceful tune. It is great to have a longer piece in first position (with extensions). The bowing is sometimes a bit difficult, so there is a challenge.
