Volume 12 in the series contains works by great composers adapted for four cellos. They all share a festive mood. Beethoven's variations on the theme of the British nation anthem God Save the King are followed by The Shepherds' Farewell from Berlioz' oratorio The Childhood of Christ, and three Christmas pieces by Mendelssohn. The excerpt from Wagner's Parsifal - excellently transcribed by Hermann Jacobowsky at the end of the 19th century - is associated with Good Friday, but because of its sacred character its mood blends with that of the preceding pieces.


Beethoven, Ludwig van: 'God Save the King' Thema und Variationen
Berlioz, Hector: The shepherds farewell
Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Felix: 3 Christmas pieces
Wagner, Richard – Jacobowsky, Hermann: Aus dem Parsifal

Chamber Music for Violoncellos

The wide range of the cello allows for the possibility of three or four cellos to play in different positions in order to create the sounds necessary for a fully-voiced chamber ensemble. This practice of transcribing works for multiple cellos began to gain popularity in the 19th century, and renowned pedagogue/composer Árpád Pejtsik has continued the tradition in this series.
