Jean-Baptiste Sebastien Bréval (1753 -- 1823) was a French cellist and composer. He wrote mostly pieces for his own instrument, and performed many world premières of his own pieces.

Bréval was born in Paris, and he went on to study with François Cupis (1732-1808) and Martin Berteau. By 1774 he was an active cello teacher. In 1775 he published his opus 1, six concertante quartets. In 1776, he became a member of the «Société Académique des Enfants d'Apollon». Kicking off his career by performing one of his sonatas at a Concert Spirituel in 1778, he became a member of their orchestra from 1781 to 1791, and from 1791 to 1800 he played in the orchestra of the Théâtre Feydeau.

Bréval is most well known for his Sonata in C major (Opus 40, No. 1), which is one of the classics of student cello literature, and often one of the first full sonatas a cello student will learn. The original version is available from several different publishers. Versions have also been published transcribed for other string instruments, including the viola, and for bass clarinet.

Although this piece was originally written for Cello and Keyboard, I created this arrangement forViola & Acoustic Piano.
