    Chamber Music for Cellos, v.12 (Pejtsik)

    Volume 12 in the series contains works by great composers, adapted for four cellos. They all share a festive mood. Beethoven's variations on the theme of the British nation anthem 'God save the King' are followed by 'The shepherds' farewell' from Berlioz' oratorio The Childhood of Christ, and three Christmas pieces by Mendelssohn. The excerpt from Wagner's Parsifal - excellently transcribed by Hermann Jacobowsky at the end of the 19th century - is associated with Good Friday, but because of its sacral character its mood harmonizes with that of the preceding pieces. Contents:
    1. Beethoven, Ludwig van: 'God Save the King' Thema und Variationen
    2. Berlioz, Hector: The shepherds farewell
    3. Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Felix: 3 Christmas pieces
    4. Wagner, Richard - Jacobowsky, Hermann: Aus dem Parsifal
