Sonata A minor Op. 36 and other Works - Edvard Grieg - Cello G. Henle Verlag
Edvard Grieg's only Cello Sonata remains one of the best kept secrets among cellists. Grieg wrote it for his brother John, an accomplished player of the instrument. Though not a string player himself, by seeking advice during the compositional process Grieg was able to create an exhilarating piece that even advanced amateurs will be delighted to discover. Our edition also contains an early Intermezzo of 1866 as well as the firstpublication of Grieg's own transcription of the Allegretto from his Vio lin Sonata op. 45, written as a birthday serenade for his brother John.
