Despite his love of the cello’s rich sonority and immense lyrical expressivity, Robert Schumann composed few works for that instrument, a situation frequently rectified, as here, by effective arrangements. Less well known, yet among her most successful compositions, are Clara Schumann’s exquisite Romances. A pupil of Rostropovich and winner of the First Prize and Gold Medal at the Third Tchaikovsky InternationalCompetition, Karine Georgian enjoys an international career as a performer and teacher. Dutch pianist Jan Willem Nelleke’s exceptional qualities as a duo partner have been widely recognised. “Everything Georgian plays is presented with the most succulent, glowing tone, the phrasing boundlessly ample.” Financial Times

“Her playing is never less than eloquent”

The Guardian

24th March 2011


“Georgian and Nelleke play both [the Fantasiestücke and the Adagio and Allegro] with such ardour and full-toned commitment that the music seems thoroughly idiomatic...Georgian's playing is so wonderfully generous in both its expressiveness and tonal range that it can be enjoyed on its own terms.”
