The German cellist Friedrich Grützmacher (1832-1903), an influential teacher and composer, wrote two important works containing studies: “ Tägliche Übungen ” (Daily Exercises) op. 67 and “Twenty-fourEtudes” op. 38.
Grützmacher was greatly admired during the 19th century for his brilliant playing technique and this forms the central part of his studies op. 38. To this day the twenty-four studiesform an integral part of cellist´s study repertoire and the development of a well-grounded cello technique.
As with Martin Rummel´s editions of Popper´s studies and the Duport Etudes, the new Grützmacher publication contains a booklet with valuable tips and references to other works in the cello repertoire requiring similiar solutions to technical problems.
