André Messager


Violoncello solo, String orchestra with Harp
Violin and Piano

edited by Christopher Hogwood

A new discovery for cellists - an attractive and lyrical Barcarolle for solo cello with string orchestra and harp by the famous operetta and ballet composer André Messager. The autograph score recently came to light in the USA and is the composer's own adaptation of a Barcarolle for violin and piano he published in 1897. This is a welcome rediscovery for violinists too, for the original version is also included as part of the new edition. Both cellists and violinists will therefore have a choice of either piano or orchestral accompaniment. Messager's Barcarolle represents a substantial addition to the instrumental legacy of a sadly neglected French master.
