Volkmann - Cello concerto op.33. You can download the PDF sheet music Volkmann - Cello concerto op.33 on this page. Volkmann's  Cello Concerto Op. 33, written at about the same time as Schumann's and sharing with it the key of A minor and a basic one-movement structure. Volkmann concentrates on his main theme and does not allow his delightful secondary ideas any development. He does not adhere to strict sonata form, writing instead a kind of fantasia with an energetic central section which resembles a development. The soloist is given a rewarding part, nobly conceived and melodically rich, and providing more opportunities for solo display than this recording may suggest. Volkmann's work is always unassuming, unfussy and in good taste; his aesthetic pulse is moderate, and there are few surprises or musical excesses. The composer knew his limitations and kept well within them.

Friedrich Robert Volkmann was a German composer. He was born in Lommatzsch, Saxony, Germany. His father was a music director for a church, so he trained his son in music to prepare him as a successor. Thus Volkmann learned to play the organ and the piano with his father, as well as violin and cello, and by age 12 he was playing the cello part in String Quartets by Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. In 1832 Robert Volkmann entered the Freiberg Gymnasium for the purpose of becoming a teacher. There he studied music with Anacker, who encouraged him to devote himself to music more fully. From there he went on to Leipzig in 1836 to study with Carl Friedrich Becker.
