Saint-Saens' life-long admiration of the cello led to some of his finest compositions. This edition, by celebrated cellist Steven Isserlis and Saint-Saens scholar Sabina Teller Ratner, brings together a collection as varied as it is appealing for Solo Cello with Piano Accompaniment. This volume includes some of Saint-Saens' best-loved pieces such as Allegro Appasionato and Le Cygne alongside his previously unpublished Gavotte . Primary sources have been consulted in preparation of the edition, which includes performance notes by Steven Isserlis and an informative introduction. The solo cello part is also included on a separate insert.
