Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote this set of six short pieces for cello and piano in 1926. Each study is based on its eponymous folk tune, first presented simply and then elaborated upon. The studies have been transcribed for other instruments, including clarinet, violin and viola.


These piano accompaniment tracks help make practising more effective and enjoyable! They are recorded by a professional accompanist and can help you keep in tune and in time, as you listen to the piano part for this work. Many customers have found them a cost-effective alternative to hiring a pianist in the early stages of learning a new piece, whether that be for an exam, recital, audition or simply for fun!

Please scroll down for samples and details of each movement.
