Piatti’s Twelve Caprices, op. 25, are the daily bread of all advanced players of the cello: Sir Yehudi Menuhin mentioned them in the same breath with the Bach Suites. Now Henle is presenting the very first urtext edition of this opus, with information on sources and alternative readings and with fold-out pages to solve the previously knotty problem of page turns.
This Urtext edition of the famous Piatti Caprices is a most welcome addition to the cellist's library. Henle is known as a publisher that strives for the most accurate and historically correct presentation of works, and this beautifully clean and readable edition, replete with fold-out pages that eliminate difficult page turns, continues that tradition.

... this latest urtext edition of the Caprices reproduces Piatti’s original bowings and fingerings. Practical suggestions regarding execution may be found at the end of the volume and the layout even considers page turns.
