In C major.
One hundred notes
Bound in a moderate lively stream
Played beautifully on a cello of dreams.
Cello of War WW1 was made of whatever material was available even the humble helmet was used. Still surviving is the ‘Trench cello’ played by Lt Harold Triggs at the Frenc trenches and in Ypres, Belgium. The more renowned is ‘le Poilu’ ‘the hairy’ that was played by the French cellist Maurice Marechal still too seen exhibited at the Cite se la Musique Paris.
