Popper wrote his Hungarian Rhapsody in 1894 and it is one of his most expansive works for cello and piano, lasting nearly 9 minutes in performance. Here you can purchase and download the piano part to play along to, recorded by a professional accompanist.
Bar 13-23 (Cello Cadenza): Two click-beats per bar indicate the pulse of the first 6 bars of the cadenza. Then approximately 15 seconds of silence is left for cello to play bar containing demi-semiquavers. Then, once again, 2 click-beats per bar accompany the final 3 bars of the cadenza before piano re-joins in bar 23
Cadenza (bar 49): approximately 19 seconds of silence is left for cello to play this cadenza, before 4 click-beats signal the start of the Andante section in bar 50
