UPDATED March 2012
April 2012 sees the release of 2 new titles each the result of some years' planning.
CC1024 is a celebration of the music and art of Julius Klengel, cellist, composer and pedagogue. No fewer than 14 cellists are heard on the Cd, starting with newly restored recordings of Klengel himself, plus the 12 - strong Cello Classics Ensemble, comprising some of the finest cellists from London, and culminating in a phenomenal performance by Raphael Wallfisch of Klengel's Capriccio for solo cello, a real tour-de-force.
Very different is the 2 cd release by Keith Harvey, CC1027. Entitled 'Dedications - a Life in Music', Keith performs 37 tracks, many of which are his own arrangements, each dedicated to one of the many musical influences in an illustrious career ranging from being the youngest ever principal cellist of a London orchestra to founding the Gabrielli Quartet and earning an Emmy for services to recorded music.
Meanwhile Cello Classics continues to discover and explore rare and unusual repertoire. Due for release later in 2012, CC1030 'Inspirales' is the work of Israeli cellist Hillel Zori. The cd features lesser-known compositions and arrangements by cellist composers such as Piatti, Popper, Cassadó, Fitzenhagen,Tortelier, Stutchewsky, Rostropovich and includes a much acclaimed transcription for cello by Zori of a Suite from Bizet's Carmen.
Late in 2012 Cello Classics will be traveling to Singapore to complete a recording of music by Brahms and Emanuel Moor with the exciting Australian- Chinese cellist Li Wei together with Qian Zhou, the orchestra and of the Singapore Conservatory under Jason Lai, andCello Classics' founder, Sebastian Comberti.
Further recordings are planned for 2013.
