ALSO – some time later David Johnstone decided to continue this set of pieces. He has also added SIX new song pieces for 4 Cellos! Numbers 4 to 9 are more comfortable technically; some parts use 5th to 7th positions, but thumb position is only very rarely called for in the upper most parts. In EVERY song, ALL parts share the melodic line although logically the first cello part shines the most in this respect. In all of these six songs, performance versions for 4 soloists or with a larger cello ensemble or orchestra are both perfectly possible (although a conductor might be welcomed in larger ensembles to keep everything together!). They are all available in Johnstone-Music (see “4 Cellos” or “Easy Cello Ensembles” for these pieces).
