Sonatas for piano and cello (complete) by Ludwig van Beethoven

Edited by Walter Schulz. Published by C.F. Peters

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 collection from C.F. Peters contains the complete set of cello sonatas. Edited by Walter Schulz. Ranges from intermediate to advanced in difficulty, grade 4-5.
