Notes and Editorial Reviews

Cello Classics explores the world of ensemble works for 4 Cellos, featuring little known gems by some of those best qualified to write for the instrument - the great Cellist-Composers of the 19th Century. Offenbach was a virtuoso himself, and his Adagio and Scherzo have only recently come to light. Grützmacher, Klengel and Fitzenhagen taught at the major conservatories in Europe and have left a wealth of literature for this wonderfully sonorous line-up - a String Quartet with four cellos. Sebastian Comberti, founder of Cello Classics, is joined by colleagues from the London Mozart Players, Julia Desbruslais, Ben Chappell and Sarah Butcher.
