The Romberg Cello Sonata in E Minor Practice Edition


In stock

Discover a whole new way to learn cello repertoire!

This comprehensive practice edition of Romberg’s Cello Sonata in E Minor (a pedagogical staple) gives you preparatory exercises for each difficult spot and then gives you the Sonata with marked study notes, including positions, rhythms, and more. A newly written cello duet part is included so that you can play along with another cellist. The book finishes with a performance copy of the solo part, the piano accompaniment, and an overview of how the Sonata can be used within a structured cello curriculum. Free play-along tracks are available through links in the book.

The first two movements of the Romberg Sonata in E Minor are set at Intermediate Level I and the last movement is set at Intermediate Level II (it uses 7th position and very brief tenor clef, both of which are taught in this book.) This Sonata is often the first significant piece that Cassia assigns to her students – even before the Breval Sonata – because it is such an amazing teaching piece! Students are invariably playing at the next level by the time they have learned the Romberg E Minor Sonata.
