These works are part of a collection containing work from multiple composers: View entire collection

The collection comprises a number of extracts from cello sonatas and other chamber works, by Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Schubert, Schumann, and Cherubini. This appears to be the first collection of this type. It is chiefly of interest for his fingerings, which make extensive use of the thumb, and sometimes introduce surprising string-crossings. There are almost no expressive fingerings, except for the octave same-finger shift in the first movement of Beethoven's sonata op. 69 - among the editions so far identified, this fingering is unique to Bockmühl. Note also his marking sur la chanterelle (the French word for the A string on the cello) in the slow movement of Mozart's A major quartet. Bockmühl's normal practice here would be to use the thumb; this marking stresses the melodic character of the phrase.
