A Little French Cello

Composer

A charming collection of music from the rich French school of the late 19th century. The sonority of the cello and the beautiful clarity of the piano make this CD both easy to listen to, and moving. The two performers, Zoe Knighton (Cello) and Amir Farid (Piano) are masters of their art. This CD began with Zoe Knighton and Amir Farid reading through a whole lot of music that had been sitting on Zoe’s shelf, unplayed for decades. They quickly fell in love with these French pieces and the CD basically compiled itself. They even recorded too much music and had to cut a short piece by Mompou – luckily he turned out to be from Barcelona.

The Glass Soldier
