The twelve Capricci op. 25 by the cello virtuoso and composer Alfredo Piatti, who performed with the likes of Liszt and Mendelssohn Bartholdy, are a must for all advanced cello players. Sir Yehudi Menuhin compared them to the Cello Suites by J. S. Bach, referring to these two works as the “Old and New Testament” of cello literature. Our Urtext edition of the Capricci (HN 746) – the first ever of its kind – is now available as a practical study edition and should be on every cellist’s shelves! And for those who wish to put the “Old Testament” alongside it, the Bach Suites can also be found in our catalogue (HN 9666).
