These musically attractive, lively sonatas by the French composer and cello pedagogue Jean-Baptiste Bréval are known under the title “Easy Sonatas.” They belong to the standard repertoire of every cello teacher; and generations of cello pupils have played them with pleasure. With our Urtext edition, which reproduces the unaltered musical text of the 1799 publication, we present an edition that satisfies today’s requirements for fidelity to the original, and allows broad latitude for interpretation.
