Relatively few works for violoncello and basso from the second half of the eighteenth century have been published in reliable critical editions. Although there is much information about contemporary cello technique in treatises of the period, until now little of this music has been available for study by performers and scholars. This edition of nine sonatas by Carlo Graziani partially fill that void. The works represent a cross-section of Graziani's musical style and approach to the cello. The composer, himself a virtuoso cellist, could perform the sonatas and demonstrate his skill. But these sonatas are also excellent pedagogical works, and many of them were written for his patron and pupil, Friedrich Wilhelm II (r. 1786-97). Of special interest are the added fingerings in the cello parts, which illustrate how an advanced cello student might approach a difficult passage.
