A Must-Have for Every Cellist and Cello Teacher

The Popper Manifesto is THE authoritative guide to intense study of David Popper’s High School of Cello Playing (40 Etudes, Op. 73). Authored and performed by notable cellist and pedagogue Dennis Parker, The Popper Manifesto consists of the entire book on CD, and Professor Parker’s performance on DVD.

The Popper Manifesto discusses the diverse techniques cellists encounter in Popper's beloved one hundred year old volume, and includes countless suggestions that aim to improve the quality and focus of practice time. Offering an entire philosophy of cello playing, the CD Book and DVD together offer a virtual master class of every study.

Dennis Parker Biography

Cellist Dennis Parker was born in New York City and began his cello studies at the age of six. He received his early training with Channing Robbins of the Juilliard School, and later earned degrees from Indiana University and Yale University, where he worked with Janos Starker and Aldo Parisot, respectively.

Since 1988, Parker has served as Professor of Cello and String Chamber Music at the Louisiana State University School of Music. A former member of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Parker has also served as Principal Cellist of the Porto Alegre Symphony Orchestra in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Parker appears frequently as soloist, recitalist, collaborator, and guest professor at numerous universities and festivals. He has transcribed many works for his instrument. He has also released two CDs with the Centaur label: Cello Matters, featuring crossover music for cello and piano by Liduino Pitombeira, Daniel Schnyder, David Baker, and Astor Piazzolla, and Uplifting Discoveries from a Generation Lost a recording of chamber music by composers who perished in the Holocaust (Erwin Schulhoff, Gideon Klein, Viktor Ullmann and Hans Krasa). Volume 1 of Stolen Sonatas with pianist, Jennifer Hayghe was released in Spring 2007, and includes Parker's own transcriptions of Debussy’s "Sonata for Violin and Piano", Poulenc’s "Sonata for Flute and Piano", and Enesco’s "Sonata No.3 for Violin and Piano."
