Poulenc - Cello Sonata


Poulenc - Cello Sonata. You can download the PDF sheet music Poulenc - Cello Sonata on this page. Francis Poulenc completed his Cello Sonata (Sonate pour violoncelle et piano), FP 143, in 1948. He first sketched it in 1940. It was dedicated to the French cellist Pierre Fournier, who had helped with the technical aspects of the cello part, as the composer was unfamiliar with the instrument. Some authors compare the sonata of Poulenc to the style of Vincent d'Indy or Albéric Magnard. Some of his themes recall Les Animaux modèles, a work the composer completed at the time of the sketches of this sonata. The posterity of the sonata is stronger than that of the violin sonata, notably because of its superiority. The cello sonata was finally completed only in 1948. It was premiered at salle Gaveau in Paris on 18 May 1949 by Poulenc as the pianist, and Pierre Fournier, the dedicatee, as the cellist.
