Suzuki Cello CD, Volumes 1 & 2

$2.66 (Fixed shipping cost)

Product Description

Performed by cellist Tsuyoshi Tsutsumi, this Suzuki Cello CD contains recordings of the pieces in Volumes 1 & 2 of the Suzuki Cello School.

Volume 1 contains a lot of simple (and some very familiar) melodies. From Folk Songs to Baroque and Romantic periods, you'll quickly develop the first position in this Volume. You'll go through the keys of D Major, G Major, and C Major, which corresponds very nicely to the easier-to-learn scales. Supplement this volume (and the next couple) with Scales Trail Challenge for the Young Cellist.

Here's a list of the pieces from Volume 1:

  • Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star Variations (Shinichi Suzuki)
  • French Folk Song (Folk Song)
  • Lightly Row (Folk Song)
  • Song of the Wind (Folk Song)
  • Go Tell Aunt Rhody (Folk Song)
  • O Come, Little Children (Folk Song)
  • May Song (Folk Song)
  • Allegro (Shinichi Suzuki)
  • Perpetual Motion in D Major (Shinichi Suzuki)
  • Perpetual Motion in G Major (Shinichi Suzuki)
  • Long, Long Ago (T. H. Bayly)
  • Allegretto (Shinichi Suzuki)
  • Andantino (Shinichi Suzuki)
  • Rigadoon (H. Purcell) * Etude (Shinichi Suzuki)
  • The Happy Farmer from Album for the Young, Op. 68, No. 10 (R. Schumann)
  • Minuet in C, No. 11 in G Major from Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach, BWV 841 (J. S. Bach)
  • Minuet No. 2 from Minuet in G Major, BWV 116 (J. S. Bach)

In Volume 2, there are some other great pieces to help develop lots of great, basic cello technique. Starts in C Major and goes back through G and D Major and adds a couple of pieces in G Minor. My personal favorite is "The Moon Over the Ruined Castle," so don't skip it just because it's called a Tonalization! Goes up through the third position, but mainly stays in first and upper second positions.

  • Long, Long Ago (T. H. Bayly)
  • May Time, Komm Lieber Mai (Longing for Spring) from Sehnsucht nach dem Frühlinge, K. 96 (W. A. Mozart)
  • Minuet No. 1, Minuett III from Suite in G Minor for Klavier, BWV 822 (J. S. Bach)
  • Minuet No. 3, Minuet in C, BWV Anh. II (J. S. Bach)
  • Chorus from Judas Maccabaeus (G. F. Handel)
  • Hunters' Chorus from 3rd Act of the opera Der Freischutz (C. M. von Weber)
  • Musette in G, Gavotte II or the Musette from English Suite III in G Minor for Klavier, BWV 808 (J. S. Bach)
  • March in G (J. S. Bach)
  • Theme from Witches' Dance (N. Paganini)
  • Tonalization: The Moon over the Ruined Castle (R. Taki)
  • The Two Grenadiers, Die Beiden Grenadier, Op. 49, No. 1 for Voice and Piano (R. Schumann)
  • Gavotte (F. J. Gossec)
  • Bourrée from Sonata in F Major for Oboe and Basso Continuo, HHA IV/18, No. 8-EZ (G. F. Handel).

You'll definitely want to be supplementing with Rick Mooney's Position Pieces by the time you are in Volume 2. I start in Book 1, but I'm a little intense. :) Enjoy these great recordings!
