The etude has a long history in the cello repertoire, evidenced by the volume of pedagogical works in the form of etudes, exercises, studies, and concert etudes available today. The sets of 12 Caprices by Franchomme and Piatti are concert etudes which are studied and performed frequently today. Selected works of these two standard etude books have been examined and analyzed, with regard to technical issues and issues of musicality.
This document focuses on the these two books, exploring the history of the cello techniques covered, explaining aspects of the music from a Schenkerian point of view, comparing the similarities and differences in technique and compositional style, and integrating aspects of performance and analysis. Professional players and students can use the information provided in this document to help in understanding the value of the two books, the evolution of cello technique in the nineteenth century, and the different compositional styles. Based on the shift in technical demands that evolved during the second half of the nineteenth century, cello players would be able to know when to study these two etudes. This document can provide the performer with a new analytical perspective, one that can enhance performance.
