  • Abstract The late nineteenth century is a period when cello saw rapid development. Growing up in this environment, David Popper, a cellist and a composer, dedicated to the prevalence of cello. Besides playing cello, he created many popular cello pieces and etudes Op.73 and Op.76. These works and etudes not only have a great influence on the cello performance in the late nineteenth century but also play a key role in modern cello development. Therefore I will explore the importance of Popper and the influence of his works by analyzing his works and etudes and surveying various analyses of comments on his etudes.
    The thesis consists of two chapters, including the introduction and conclusion. The chapter one discusses the biography and the style of his composition. Besides introducing its style, it also mentions that his style and techniques are close to Franco-Belgian school. Chapter two focuses on the analysis of his three etudes and other solo pieces, making a comparison with another two references. In the end, it offers cello works in different periods with Popper’s Op.73 for practice, in order to see the applicability of Popper’s etudes. From analyzing Popper’s works, it shows that fingering and bowing are slightly different between now and the end of the nineteenth century since all of his etudes mark fingering and bowing. It provides references for performer while choosing etudes and raises the status of Popper in the development of cello.
