Beethoven's three sets of cello variations comprise theTwelve Variations on a Theme from Handel's Oratorio 'Judas Maccabeus'(WoO 45), theTwelve Variations on the theme 'Ein Madchen oder Weibchen'(op.66) from Mozart's operaDie Zauberfloteand theSeven Variations on the duet 'Bei Mannern, welche Liebe fuhlen'(WoO 46), also fromDie Zauberflote.

These works have existed in many different editions, some of which have from time to time been (tacitly) reprinted with corrections to keep up to date with the latest scholarship. This new Barenreiter Urtext edition, however, is the first to give all Beethoven's rhythms in the violoncello part correctly. Beethoven's autograph manuscript of op.66 is lost; the critical commentary (English) includes a complete facsimile of the violoncello part from the only surviving source (the first edition), illustrating the various problems encountered in determining the best musical text.

- With numerous corrections in the violoncello part
- Included in the critical commentary is a complete facsimile of the violoncello
part of op. 66, as it appeared in the first edition
