Sonatas for Piano and Violoncello (complete) by Ludwig van Beethoven

Edited by Jonathan Del Mar. Published by Barenreiter.

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 Barenreiter urtext edition of the complete cello sonatas contains the first ever critical commentary of the works, along with facsimiles of the original manuscripts. Edited by Jonathan Del Mar. Includes separately bound solo and piano parts and pull-out critical commentary and facsimile. Ranges in difficulty from intermediate to advanced, grades 4-5.
