Abstract/Description: The First Sonata for Cello and Piano by Bohuslav Martinů (1890-1959) is a work that has been undeservingly neglected in performance history. This treatise makes this work more approachable for performers, from both a musical and a technical standpoint. The historical and musical context of the piece was examined, and the work was analyzed from a performer's perspective. This treatise presents these findings, followed by a series of preparatory technical exercises for the cello.
