Bags Of Christmas for Cello (Instrumental Solo)

Mary Cohen

Thumbnail 240

Bags of Christmas for Cello by Mary Cohen is full of tunes to get you into the festive mood and is suitable for players of grades 1-2 standard. As well as lots of favourite carols and Christmas songs, there are some new ‘seasonal soundscapes’ picturing snowmen, snow angels, and even a mischievous kitten!

This is great material to play with friends, and at family gatherings and parties, from the build-up to Christmas right through to New Year. Each piece is complete in itself, so does not need an accompaniment, but for fun you could ask a friend to improvise a simple rhythm on drum or percussion to fit with your part.

Mary Cohen has yet again produced an excellent addition to her ‘Superseries’ in this delightful mixture of traditional and more jaunty of carols (sic) including Mary’s own imaginative compositions. Arriving at the same time as the review copy, a Grade 1 pupil was so intrigued by the edition that we spent the whole lesson enjoying it [...] Extended 1st position is introduced sensibly with the occasional 4th finger note, encouraging the whole arm unit to move up to the note that the ear expects [...] Mary’s own pieces have a good technical interest, especially The Kitten and the Christmas tree [...] Only one carol has a duet accompaniment. Let us hope that Bags of Christmas Duets is to be the next in the series.
