She wanted to have recording at home to get the rhythm right. I sent her to google saying there are many - every cellist has played it. She found one recording of a famous French Russian cellist I had never heard of. She sent a cheque, but after 2 years no CD had arrived, the cheque not been cashed! We found actually a few exam support recordings of a very sad quality of phrasing and expression. This inspired me to check recordings of other cello student pieces. It seems cellists like to be heard with difficult works and we are left with hardly any recordings of good quality easier works. I promised her to make a CD with the pieces we study in the lessons including the Breval. Her stepson - a good friend of mine, Gavin Tipping - was volunteering to be the accompanier. I hope this recording will inspire students to play student pieces with the feeling to have already arrived somewhere, gems of the music literature. This movement is a Grade 4 AMEB exam piece. Recorded at the launch of the CD " Cello Favourites".
