Notes and Editorial Reviews
Three lovely but rarely performed cello concertos are featured on this new release. These works are among the earliest in the genre by German composers. Cellist Alexander Rubin is not only a multi-prize winning soloist, but also a respected conductor. He fills both roles on this recording. Musica Viva is one of the best-loved chamber orchestras in Russia. The musicians are known for their refined but unconventional programmes, where they frequently perform rare works.
