NEW EDITION: David Popper's Wie einst in schöner'n Tagen - Op. 64 No. 1, for two cellos

The second edition of 2022 is dedicated to bohemian cellist and composer David Popper (1843—1913). It is my personal arrangement of “As in the Old Days”, Op. 64 No. 1, originally for cello and piano, for two cellos. This allowed its performance with a student of mine back in 2021.

This is a great piece to introduce a cellist to a very light usage of the thumb position, all the while being a beautifully soaring and descriptive composition.

I hope you and your students will find it useful.

This arrangement is dedicated to Susan Ribicki-Varga.
