Suite for Two Violoncellos, Op. 16
This is infectious, vibrant and dazzling music well within the grasp of any advanced cello student, and a must for professionals. A new, clean, modern score shows Popper’s own original bowings and fingerings, while the parts (edited by Alexander Hülshoff and Martin Rummel) suggest a modern approach to performance. The suite comprises five movements that progress through popular dance types and character pieces. A Tempo di Marcia, originally published separately, but included in this edition for the first time alongside the suite it was written to conclude, provides an effective and simpler alternative finale.
