Joseph Servais (1850—85) was the youngest son of Belgian cellist-composer François Servais and Sophie Feygin. Joseph followed in his father's footsteps to become a virtuoso cellist and his successor at the Brussels Conservatory. Joseph had an illustrious career as a cellist during his relatively short life. He left behind a few compositions, including a cello concerto, a string quartet, a half dozen Romances for cello and piano (one orchestrated), a couple of preludes, and around a dozen other incomplete works. The string quartet was published with his brother Franz's supervision in 1900. Most notably, Joseph Servais was the dedicatee of the Second Cello Concerto by Henry Vieuxtemps, a set of melodies by Désiré Artôt, and Aubabe mauresque, Op. 49 by Edouard de Hartog.

The present edition includes six Romances and Prelude, published for the first time. All sources come from a private collection.
