Among the many works Offenbach wrote for the Cello, is a series of operatic fantasies. Of these, there is a set of six under the title Fantaisies faciles Op.69-74, published in 1853. The new edition herewith confines itself to just three of the pieces based on operas which remain in the repertoire today.
The original printed editions have been revised, with misprints corrected, passages where the Cello and Piano parts differ made to correspond and questions in the music text settled by recourse to the original opera score.
