DVORAK: Cello Concerto in B Minor; FAURÉ: Elegie /Janos Starker, cello/ Philharmonia Orch./Walter Susskind – Hi-Q Records xrcd24
A valuable remastering of a classic Starker performance.
FAURE: Cello Sonata No. 1; Cello Sonata No. 2; Elegie; Romance; Papillon; Serenade; Sicilienne; Allegro commodo – Alban Gerhardt, cello/ Cecile Licad, p. – Hyperion
Precious music of Faure elegantly rendered in lovely harmony by two collaborators with the same high-mindedness.
A disc worth exploring no matter how many recordings of Rachmaninoff’s famed Preludes you may have in your collection.
