Sonata in A Major for cello and piano by Cesar Franck

Edited by Robert Casadesus and Leonard Rose

Cesar Franck (1822-90) was one of the most influential composers in France at the end of the nineteenth century, as well as a prominent organist and respected teacher. His music is most known for its recurring cyclic themes, deep expression and dramatic harmonies and modulations, the latter an important influence on Debussy. Unusually for a composer of his stature, his reputation rests almost entirely on a handful of late works.

Franck dedicated his Violin Sonata in A Major (1886) to the great virtuoso Eugene Ysaye, who championed the work across his illustrious career. It is an important and deeply treasured work in the core violin repertory; its reputation and singular qualities are such that it is often played by violists and cellists, a rare feat among violin sonatas. This International edition of the arrangement for cello and piano was edited by Leonard Rose and Robert Casadesus. For advanced players, grade 5.
