Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme are the closest that the composer ever came to writing a cello concerto. Inspired by Mozart, this piece was written for Wilhelm Fitzenhagen, a German cellist and professor at the Moscow Conservatory. Fitzenhagen gave the premiere of the work in 1877, and it has been a classic ever since. This edition has been arranged for double bass and piano by Petru Iuga, retaining all the virtuosity and style of the original.
