Info zu Brahms & Schumann: Works for Cello and Piano
For their first recording, Bruno and Tanguy have chosen three masterpieces of Romantic chamber music. Throughout this programme, the piano carries on a dialogue with the sound of the cello in a fascinating polyphony, bearing witness to a unique moment of poetry, magic, and complicity.
"Two young French musicians offer promising and subtly interpreted performances of these central works of the Romantic cello repertoire for their début album." (The Strad)
