10 traditional Irish airs arranged especially for solo cello. The Book includes a CD of all the Airs recorded by Ilse de Ziah. This is a tool to help you unlock the beauty of Irish airs as played on the cello. It is also excellent for technical development. The left hand pizzicato, false harmonics and octaves of Buachaill ó’n Éirne, the double stops of Sally Gardens, the purity of Amhrán na Leabhar will help you develop your technical ability, especially intonation, in an enjoyable and satisfying way. These different techniques ensure that the melody is supported by an accompaniment despite it being played on only one instrument, thus adding body and color. However, always make sure the melody comes through clearly.
