Tune of the Day: Study in C major by Popper
This étude was kindly contributed to our collection by Lily. It is based on Bohemian cellist and composer David Popper's Hohe Schule des Violoncello-Spiels (High School of Cello Playing), Op. 73, published in 1901.
The central part of the study, notated in octave clef, provides a fun challenge in the high register; it can also be played, however, in normal treble clef. The low C's in measures 60–63 can also be played one octave above, if desired.
