Notes and Editorial Reviews

Leonard Elschenbroich is one of today's most exciting cellists. On this fascinating program, he explores a century of French music for cello. The two cello concertos from Dutilleux and Saint-Saëns, composed 100 years apart, frame Debussy's late Cello Sonata, Ravel's Habanera and movement five of Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time. These compositions span years of the Franco-Prussian War, the First and Second World wars, and into the 1970s. Leonard Elschenbroich is one of today's most exciting cellists.
