|Popper, David (1843-1913)
Fifteen Easy Melodic-Harmonic Etudes for Violoncello with an accompaniment of a second Violoncello (ad libitum) Ten Grand Etudes of Moderate Difficulty for Violoncello solo op. 76|
BA6979 These two new editions (BA 6978 & BA 6979) of David Popper’s cello studies are the first
modern publications of these standard compositions. The Austrian born Popper composed these
studies during his tenure at the Royal Conservatory in Budapest in the late 1890s and they were
first published between 1901-05.
The 40 etudes found in op. 73 focus on a wide range of techniques found in the major works in
the cello literature. The 15 easy etudes are designed for the first years of
lessons which lead to the 10 grand etudes which in turn lead to the op. 73 etudes.
Martin Rummel’s editions offer new bowings and fingerings to reflect modern playing.
The 40 Etudes op. 73 also includes a German / English brochure containing technical tips and
information by Rummel as well as references to the cello literature where the individual
techniques are found.
- First modern edition of these standard studies
- With bowings and fingerings for today's cellists
- Additional brochure to the 40 etudes with playing tips and references to where the techniques
are found in the standard cello literature
“Sleekly bound, immaculately engraved, and competitively priced, these editions are a must for
students and teachers alike ... Buy it - you’ll like it!”
„A ‚must have’ for every advanced cellist.“
