David Geringas (mws-henle.person.role.FING CELLO)

Alterations to the original bowings and dynamics are clearly marked, and the edition follows the composer’s own piano reduction of the work which included additions to the solo cello part. Thankfully, unlike my own French this one contains bar numbers, and some very carefully-organised pageturns in the piano part.

Music Teacher, 2003

Dieses Konzert ist eine wahre Perle des großen Cellorepertoires. Die Urtextausgabe wurde von David Geringas eingerichtet und mit einem ausführlichen Vorwort des Herausgebers Peter Jost versehen. Johannes Umbreit hat den originalen, durchweg gut spielbaren Klavierauszug des Komponisten unter praktischen Gesichtspunkten neu überarbeitet.

Pizzicato, 2002

Saint-Saëns has entered the Henle catalogue with three new publications at once. One, the a-minor Concerto, is a jewel in the repertoire of great cello music. This urtext edition has been marked up by David Geringas and supplied with a detailed preface by the editor, Peter Jost. Johannes Umbreit has revised the composer’s highly playable piano reduction to suit the needs of today’s performers.
