This popular student piece, edited for many instruments including trombone, flute and voice, is originally written for cello & piano, dedicated to the 50th birthday ("cinquantaine") of Monsieur E. Binon, violoncellist of "the opera" (Paris?).

I refused to do this piece with my students for years. After being begged by a student to teach it, I redid all the bowings - especially putting the harmonic A's on a down bow - composers write harmonics to give lightness to the sound, but just this note on an up bow gets totally squashed in the typical pressure towards of most students."

Georg and Gavin are available for House Concerts.
