Sonatas for Violoncello & Piano, (revised urtext, complete) by Ludwig van Beethoven

  • Edited by Jens Dufner, fingerings and markings by David Geringas. Published by Henle

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) was the most influential and admired composer of the Romantic Era, and is considered today to be among the greatest composers of classical music to ever live. His music is known variously for its compositional rigor, sublime beauty, organic development, gripping urgency, and life-affirming, universal humanism. He left a significant mark on almost every classical genre he worked in, from string quartets to symphonies.

At the beginning of the 19th century, string sonatas were often considered piano sonatas with instrumental accompaniment. This was especially true for the cello, which was often relegated to the role of basso continuo. Beethoven's five cello sonatas-truly the first of their kind-brought the instrument into the spotlight. They have since become the most significant cycle in the cello repertory after the Bach suites. This urtext collection from Henle contains the complete set of cello sonatas with high-quality printing and research according to the Beethoven Complete Critical Edition. Edited byJens Dufner, with fingerings and markings by David Geringas. Contains marked and unmarked cello parts. Ranges from intermediate to advanced in difficulty, grade 4-5.
