Édouard Lalo (1823-1892) was a French composer who is best known for his Symphonie Espagnole for violin and orchestra as well as his Cello Concerto. However, he also has beautiful chamber works such as sonata for cello and for violin, piano trios, and string quartets that are often overlooked. Like in other composers from Lalo's generation, we can hear an influence of German composers such as Schumann, Mendelssohn, and Wagner, as well as the French-Polish Chopin. But we can also hear a distinctly French sound in Lalo's music, the turn of a phrase, the use of harmony. 

Our new edition of the Cello Sonata (1856) is based on the first edition published by Georges Hartmann in 1875. differences in slurring, dynamics, and articulation between the score and cello part have been resolved. When the slurring differs in the cello part and the score, the score slurring is placed below and the part slurring above. Editorial marks are placed in brackets or denoted by dashed slurs and hairpins. Missing clef changes have been inserted without comment. The lowest note in bar 118 of the first movement has been changed from a G to an F to match the octave passage. In the finale, bar 120, RH, the seventh note should be a G, not an F#, to match the pattern 2 bars later. 

Lalo's original piano pedaling, including the "con sord." (una corda) has been retained, unlike in other contemporary editions.
