The German cellist Friedrich Grützmacher (1832-1903), an influential
teacher and composer,
wrote two important works containing studies: “Tägliche Übungen”
(Daily Exercises) op. 67
and “Twenty-four Etudes” op. 38.
Grützmacher was greatly admired during the 19th century for his
brilliant playing technique and
this forms the central part of his studies op. 38. To this day the
twenty-four studies form an integral
part of cellists study repertoire and the development of a
well-grounded cello technique.
As with Martin Rummels editions of Poppers studies and the Duport
Etudes, the new Grützmacher
publication contains a booklet with valuable tips and references to
other works in the cello repertoire
requiring similiar solutions to technical problems.
- Fold-out pages for ease of playing
- Large format
- Additional modern fingering and bowing
- Valuable comments in English and German on the technical goals of
“…this is the definitive edition.” (MMA “Ensemble”, Sept’08)
