Introduction and a Russian Dance, Op. 113/1
This first modern edition of Ries’s Introduction and a Russian Dance for cello and piano brings a work back to light that reflects a fashion of the early 19th century, when Eastern European national music became popular in central Europe and was often used as a theme for variation. Clearly influenced by his mentor Beethoven and his friend, the cellist Bernhard Romberg, this is a perfect piece for recitals or student exams. Our edition comes with two cello parts: One with the original fingerings and bowings from the first edition, one with Martin Rummel’s suggestions for today’s performance practice.
