Gavotte No. 2 in D Major, Op.23 for cello and piano by David Popper
Edited by Leonard Rose. Published by International
Prague-born cellist David Popper (1843-1913) was a leading virtuoso, chamber musician, and pedagogue of the cello of the nineteenth century. He was a prolific writer of music for the cello; he wrote numerous showpieces for the concert hall and salon, many of them extending the expressive range of the instrument. He is perhaps best-known for his cello methods, which are still widely used today.
Popper's Gavotte No. 2 in D Major, Op.23 is a spritely salon showpiece with extensive use of thumb position, double stopping, and harmonics. Advanced level, grade 5.
