This is the book that launched a whole new cello style. Its pieces are performed around the world. A variety of contemporary styles, including Latin, rock and roll, blues, and more, plus musical depictions of American places, activities, and moods
Minsky has composed this set of ten cello pieces based on musical styles from around the world, such as Mexico, Ireland, Asia, Israel, Africa, the Caribbean, and America. Through this suite the cello becomes an international ambassador of peace.
This fun and innovative collection introduces cellists to a range of pop and rock styles. Building on the trail-blazing approach to cello playing that he developed in Ten American Cello Etudes and Ten International Cello Encores, Aaron Minsky presents the intermediate student with attractive new pieces that explore a number of technical and musical challenges.
For unaccompanied viola. Transcribed for viola by David Dalton from Ten American Cello Études, these pieces are designed to encourage violists to improvise, play chords, use syncopation, and participate in popular musical forms.
These Three Concert Etudes extend and amplify the techniques and styles introduced in Ten American Cello Etudes, and represent an aspect of contemporary music often neglected in the concert hall.
The Judaic Concert Suite combines two elements from the traditional cello repertoire. One element harks back to Ernest Bloch, well known for his short works for cello and piano based on Jewish themes. This suite, however, is for solo cello, and with its robust sound and use of counterpoint of chords, it is also in the tradition of the Bach Cello Suites.
The Three American Cello Duets are rooted in the tradition of cello duets written by performing cellists: Dotzauer, Romberg, Lee, Klengel, and Popper come to mind. However these duets are based on American popular styles such as the blues, soul, and country.
A variety of contemporary styles, including Latin, rock and roll, blues, and more transcribed from the famous Ten American Cello Etudes. Musical depictions of American places, activities, and moods
Encores inspired by destinations around the world, including Africa, Asia, Mexico, and more
A variety of contemporary styles, including jazz, heavy metal, and Latin. Transcribed from Ten International Cello Encores. Many styles and techniques not found in traditional violin music.
