Locatelli Sonata

International Edition © 2020

I was honored to be co-editor alongside Daniel Morganstern for this edition of the Locatelli Sonata, published in 2020 through the International Music Company.

This edition includes my commentary on cello technique. The preface includes my guide to up-bow staccato.

Daniel Morganstern also presents useful exercises and practice tips to this challenging work.

Excerpt provided below:

"Leonard Rose teaches us that the bow never travels in an absolutely straight line, and this is particularly true when plaving staccato. When plaving up-bow and down-bow staccato passages you need to draw the bow at acute angles rather than drawing the bow so that it is absolutely perpendicular to the string."
