Picture of Sheet music  for cello and piano by John Garth. Garth's extraordinary cello concertos

John Garth ( 1721-1810) was born near Durham, in North East England. He started life as a jobbing musician, and made his career by promoting concerts in Durham every two weeks. In alternate weeks the concerts were organised in nearby Newcastle by Garth's good friend Charles Avison, in whose orchestra Garth played cello. He was an accomplished player, as shown by the quality of his six concertos, believed to be the first such pieces written by an English composer (considering Handel to be German.).

These are splendid works, forward-looking and richly melodic, and a wonderful addition to any musician's repertoire. The first recording was made by the Avison Ensemble with Richard Tunnicliffe, solo cello, and issued on Divine Art DDA25059 (2CD set for the price of 1 CD) see this disc in the UK store / USA store

This new edition is in a cello and piano reduction by Mark Kroll, adapted from the recent performing edition by Gordon Dixon. Both the full set and each individual concerto is published in both printed form and as a PDF file. PLEASE NOTE: by customer request the solo cello parts are sold separately (catalogue numbers BML110-116)
