Notes and Editorial Reviews

Surely not many cellists are able to perform rare, original cello duets with their own father. The GinzelDuello however combines the professionalism and experience of father Reiner Ginzel (a professor at Munich’s University of Music) with the youthful freshness and creative spontaneity of young cellist and composer Hans-Henning Ginzel, some of whose remarkable arrangements can be heard on this new release. His takes on classics such as Bach’s famous Air and Debussy’s “Golliwogg’s Cakewalk” feature alongside less familiar 19th-century compositions by Bernhard Heinrich Romberg and Sebastian Lee that are well worth discovering. This is an oeuvre rarely heard – an attractive programme of delights that no classical music lover can resist.
