David Popper's Studies sparkle with his contagious passion fot music and virtuosity providing happiness (and some trouble) among students as well as the pleasure of the audience. As a child, I considered them as as source of dreams which could be compared with a gameful adventurous exploration ! Returning to them 30 years later is like a dangerous but enriching pilgrimage which all cellists shoud experiment.
