Notes and Editorial Reviews

Despite his love of the cello’s rich sonority and immense lyrical expressivity, Robert Schumann composed few works for that instrument, a situation frequently rectified, as here, by effective arrangements. Unfailingly eloquent and characterful, these works are admired by musicians and music lovers alike. Less well known, yet among her most successful compositions, are Clara Schumann’s exquisite Romances. A pupil of Rostropovich and winner of the First Prize and Gold Medal at the Third Tchaikovsky International Competition, Karine Georgian enjoys an international career as a performer and teacher. Dutch pianist Jan Willem Nelleke’s exceptional qualities as a duo partner have been widely recognised.

 Love Schumann, love the cello September 1, 2016 By Elizabeth W. (Seattle, WA) See All My Reviews "This is a beautiful recording which I purchased not that long ago. Then a friend who loved to play the cello became the recipient of my CD to enjoy during his illness. It was an emotional experience for me when this particular recording was played during his memorial service. It sounded beautiful in the church. I ordered a new copy for my own collection."
