SJ Music has just published Four Famous Opera Arias for Cello Duet. You can buy the arrangements from music shops and online at SJ Music’s website: https://www.sjmusicpublications.co.uk/
At last cellists have the chance to play the tune (not just the accompaniment!) in Toreador Song and Habanera from Carmen, in Your Tiny Hand is Frozen from La Boheme and in Non Piu Andrai from The Marriage of Figaro. The standard is Grade 6 upwards and ricochet bowing, l.h. pizzicato, col legno, tremolos and harmonics are used to enhance the varying moods in the music.
The cd which accompanies the arrangements can be purchased from our website here: http://www.fedorastrings.com/product-category/cd-sales/
SJ Music is based in London and specialises in unusual string chamber music and cello repertoire. It sells not only cello duets but cello quartets and octets as well as fun melodies which focus on cello harmonics and some excellent cello technique books written by the brilliant Christopher Bunting, which I can thoroughly recommend. If you haven’t discovered this imaginative publishing company yet they are well worth checking out.
