A nice arrangement. The piano accompaniment was different that I anticipated. I reviewed the piano part before I purchased and I thought the part was nicely arranged so I gave it a try. After rehearsing with the pianist, I felt the piano part was too far from what I wanted. This is not the fault of Virtual Sheet Music: totally my fault. Next time, I 'll stick to the traditional versions.

...why don't you offer it for double-bass and piano too? Many double-bassists like to play it and it isn't always very nice to have to buy cello scores, even though there wouldn't be much difference.

In general on your site, it would be nice if you offered more for double-bass. That's why I removed a star.

Not so challenging technically, but don't let that convince you that it's an easy thing to play. Getting the sound is the hardest part. This piece is all feeling. It's really difficult in that respect. Really, amazing, beautiful melody. I'm completely in love with it.

An Iconic Cello perfomance piece.
A must have

Nice arrangement for cello and piano. Fairly simple techniquely, interpreting the music is the hardest part. Very beautful music, great for an encore.

I love this piece of music very much. I have started learning the cello only four months back and am finding this to be one of the most soothing and expressive pieces ever written for the cello. I like the middle part of the piece where the composer does a ritardando on the F and augments it with a F#. I hope to be able to play this in another three months.

I'm from India and in the city where I come from there are just about 8-10 cellists who play professionally and I'm grateful to be able to learn from one of them. We must take sincere efforts to bring back the mother of all forms of music (Western Classical) back to where she belonged.

A personal suggestion on the downloadable version....The font for the piano score is very small. If that can be increased a little it would be great. Thank you..

Excellent, the mp3 sounds really fake, would have been nice to have a real recording, but the quality of the sheet music is excellent.

I chose this piece of music because a friend of mine wants me to play a piano/cello duet with her (she's the cellist). The piece is well-known, beautiful and adapts perfectly to these two instruments. The layout is clear for both instruments, with the added bonus of a separate 'learning' page for the cello. I was very impressed with the clarity when I printed it out. I would use the service again.

I bo't this to play with my granddaughter who is a beginning 'cello player. I think it will be easy for her to read, but challenging to play legato.
The music is easy to read & clear.

I needed this piece for one of my students recently to perform at a year 12 Prefect Investiture in Brisbane Australia. The music was easy to down load. But my student managed to get the piece from a University library anyway! But great to know I can find special pieces very quickly.
