Puchhammer-Sédillot: Pièces de Concours – from the Paris Conservatoire repertoire, Vol. 3
– Score and parts –
A real treasure trove in the scarce Romantic viola repertoire: The three-volume edition contains original works which were used as compulsory pieces in final examinations of the viola class at the Conservatoire de Paris between 1897 and 1969.
The editor rediscovered these almost forgotten ‘Pièces de concours’ and compiled them in three volumes. In the present edition, ‘modern’ fingerings and bowing indications have been added to the pieces in order to make it easier to access these works and facilitate sight-playing.
