Camille Saint-Saens - Concerto No. 1 for Violoncello & Orchestra in A Minor, Op. 33
The Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor has an original structure as well as an attractive and challenging solo part. Although it is through-composed, it is easily divided into three movements. The main theme from the opening reappears several times in each of the sections, which gives the piece a unity and sense of organic wholeness. The book includes a printed solo part, and a CD with selected slow-tempo passages from the accompaniment for practice purposes.
