Appendix 2: Other works for cello and orchestra (Composers S-Z)


Project Home Page

Composers A-F Composers G-K Composers L-R

This is a list of non-concerto works for cello and orchestra/ensemble by composers who did not write a cello concerto. For composers who also wrote one or more cello concertos (including those for multiple cellos), such works are mentioned in the composer’s entry in the alphabetical listing, and they are not included here. When this project was first published the original version of this appendix was chronological and selective, and included only relatively major works that could be heard: that Appendix may be found here. In the present list, if no recording is mentioned then this means that we have to date been unable to identify one. Links to performances on the internet are provided for such works, where available.
