Mellow Cello (2CD)

When Australia voted for its favourite instrument in this year’s ABC Classic 100, it was the cello that came in at #1. This double album is a showcase of exquisite classical music for the cello, from the great concertos to beloved tunes from opera and movie soundtracks: a chance to sink into the rich, singing tones of this glorious instrument and let yourself be carried away by its sheer beauty. Music by Arvo Pärt and JS Bach, Elgar and Saint-Saëns, Louise Farrenc and Nigel Westlake, Haydn, Chopin, Piazzolla and many, many more.
