Initially connected with teaching practices and the need to provide pieces for cellists in the same class to play together (the ones composed by Jacques Offenbach or Auguste Franchomme), the corpus of scores for cello ensemble expanded somewhat at the turn of the twentieth century and left the confines of the music schools. Such pieces were not composed by teachers or virtuosos of the instrument, but by artists seeking to create new sounds by the use of rare or novel instrumental combinations. The exploration of this lesser-known repertoire takes us into uncharted territory, with the works, for example, of Marie-Joseph Erb (1858-1944) and Hélène-Frédérique de Faye-Jozin (1871-1942).
