Felix Mendelssohn: Complete Works for Cello and Piano
Marcy Rosen, Lydia Artymiw
Paul Mendelssohn, Felix’s younger brother, was a banker by profession but an accomplished amateur cellist, and it is to him that we owe Felix Mendelssohn's three major compositions for cello and piano. This new recording presents Mendelssohn's complete output for cello and piano, and includes the three large scale works, as well as two short pieces, performed by leading virtuosi Marcy Rosen and Lydia Artymiw.
“Delightfully ear-tickling. The joy of collaborative music-making oozes from these performances. This is a richly enjoyable CD, full of artistic wisdom and deeply respectful of the composer’s musical intentions.” —StarTribune
