This substantial addition to the intermediate cello repertoire in the celebrated 'Fiddler' format includes cello melody, accompaniment and easy parts, with piano accompaniment and guitar chords, and with performance/backing CD. Around 20 pieces in a wide variety of styles from folk to tango, drawn from, and compatible with, the The Fiddler Playalong Collection violin and viola books.
"Came across this collection when browsing local music shop and thank goodness I did. My last few months cello practice sessions have been made so enjoyable by the music included. The variety of playing styles was a revelation to me. Listening and learning from the artists has help free up my technique - the printed music comes with fingering suggestions. The easier cello part included allows you to enjoy playing along whilst trying to master the solo part up to speed. An excellent collection and I hope there will be others to follow. Cellists would enjoy the variety of folk repertoire enjoyed by fiddlers."

"I was looking for interesting (and not too difficult) material to play on bass recorder, written in bass key. This Cello Collection fits the bill perfectly! I find myself listening to the performance tracks just for enjoying the music, which obviously is very motivating for practice.
Compared to similar collections by other publishers I was favourably surprised by the amount of material Boosey & Hawkes include: First cello, easy version therof, cello accompagniment, piano accompagniment, guitar accords. I'll have a close look at the other publications in this series."
