Misc. Comments

  • This Cello Method instructs the student through a graduated system and analytical rudiments of music to the highest degree of art. This includes the knowledge of harmony counerpoint and fugue.
  • This Metodo di violoncello (Milan, 1876) has an interesting preface, comparing the earliest bowed instruments, and their evolution, with folk instruments from many countries.
  • Quarenghi has published numerous compositions for his instrument, but he will always be best known by this great Metodo di Violoncello published at Milan in 1877, which is undoubtedly the most complete method in existence. It was formally adopted by the Milan Conservatorio in 1875, after a commission of 4 professors (with Piatti) had reported on its merits. It is divided into five parts, of which the third is a short treatise on Harmony and Counterpoint, a branch of study which, in the words of the report, has been either omitted or imperfectly developed in the existing methods. It is much to be regretted that this admirable work has not been translated to other languages, as it only has to be known to be thoroughly appreciated by all professors of the violoncello.
