Editorial Reviews

This sensational new release from cellist Alban Gerhardt recaptures the novelty of the much-loved encores performed by Pablo Casals. Casals, one of the world s greatest cellists, had a vast repertoire of encores that were adored by his audiences. The disc features transcriptions of works by composers including Fauré, Chopin, Saint-Saëns, Popper, Boccherini and Wagner. Gerhardt performs these miniature masterworks with extraordinary finesse and verve and is intelligently partnered and perfectly matched by pianist Cecile Licad in her Hyperion debut.

Format: Audio CD
Rarely does one find exquisite playing and a technically superior recording, but here is one of those rare occasions. I bought three copies of this album, one for myself and two for gifts to fellow cello students who will appreciate these short pieces. (I might have to re-order at Christmas time.) I highly recommend you give this album a hearing. Gerhardt is a strong player whom you will enjoy if you also like Wendy Warner and Rostropovich as much as I do.
