Grieg Holberg Suite (6 cellos)
Includes parts, no score. No real “beginner” material in this.
Cellos I – II require advanced players who are comfortable in treble clef, thumb position, double stops.
Cello III and IV has a blend of bass, tenor and treble clefs, not always warranted given the note range. Could be disconcerting for players who are unable to fluidly move between clefs, or aren’t quick on changing double stops.
Cello V is primarily in bass clef, the parts are more accessible but not for beginners. There are occasional treble clef notation despite the fact they hover around a middle C. Alternate notation would have been helpful.
Cello VI bass clef, fewer and easier double stops, but the rhythms in “Air” are out of the range of many beginners.
