An admired contemporary of Liszt and Brahms, the widely-travelled Bohemian-born virtuoso cellist and influential pedagogue David Popper composed prolifically for his instrument. His High School of Cello Playing comprises forty etudes which have remained essential for both aspiring and advanced players for more than a century. His intimate knowledge of the cello’s capabilities raises these studies above the level of mere exercises in technique, no lesser light than Pablo Casals declaring that “no other composer wrote better for the instrument”.

Review By David Denton, Naxos,January 2009

In the forty studies contained in the ‘High School of Cello Playing’, David Popper sets out a complete compendium of the technical requirements for a high level command of the instrument.
