This volume contains romantic works arranged for three cellos. The 'Ungarische Melodie' and 'Ungarischer Marsch' were originally piano pieces. Their composer, Franz Schubert, in the summer of 1824 was music teacher to Count Esterházy's family in Zseliz on the Garam. Here from a peasant girl he heard the Hungarian songs that he incorporated in these two works. From Brahms's series of '16 Walzer', Op.39, likewise written for piano, the arranger of the volume paired together two pieces in a ternary form. Debussy's well-known work 'The little Nigar' with its syncopated rhythm evokes the black folk music of New Orleans. The less well-known 'Gavotte' by Dvorák was originally written for three violins. The pieces in the volume provide parts of varying degrees of difficulty for the three cellos, so that less experienced players can also take part in the shared musicmaking.
