      Franchomme: Nocturne, Op 15 No 3 (5:24)

      Louise Dubin & Saeunn Thorsteinsdóttir, cellos

      This long-overdue tribute to the French Romantic-era virtuoso cellist and composer August Franchomme brings to light many of his long-neglected original compositions and arrangements. As Chopin’s close friend, confidante and musical partner, Franchomme transcribed several of the Polish master’s famous piano works for cellos in various combinations. He penned many remarkable original compositions as well. Some of the best of both are recorded here for the first time.
