Sheet Music: Score
The Princess and the cello alliance : for cello quartet or ensemble / John Nottle.
by John Nottle (2016)
The Princess and the Cello Alliance begins with a cavatina -a short song-like section, exploring modality in a contrapuntal style that allows each voice to express itself lyrically. The 2nd section is more robust and technically challenging. However, the 4th voice has been deliberately kept as simple as the music will allow in order that a student, or students, of a lesser technical ability can participate in the ensemble.
