Mendelssohn Complete Works for Violoncello & Pianoforte I
Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy’s works for violoncello and piano occupy a special place within the repertoire of cellists and chamber musicians. The lyrical Song without Words (Romance sans paroles) is among the most popular of all teaching pieces.
Mendelssohn was inspired by his contacts with the leading cellists of his day to write for this instrument. This unique Urtext edition contains all of Mendelssohn’s finished works for violoncello and piano as well as reconstructions and completions of his unfinished works for the same scoring. The editor R. Larry Todd has composed the cello part for the variations and has completed the graceful Assai tranquillo.
