Cello Swoon (2CD)

For over 20 years, the ‘Swoon’ segment on ABC Classic FM’s Breakfast show has been a beloved oasis of calm and beauty, a chance to shut out the noise and busyness of everyday life, and drink in the loveliness of pure music. This double album presents some of Australia’s finest cellists playing over two hours of cello music to make you swoon, from the Baroque elegance of Bach’s cello suites and sweeping Classical concertos by Haydn, Dvořák and Elgar to modern minimalist masterpieces by Arvo Pärt and Ludovico Einaudi.
