About the album

Lets for the fun of it pretend I need to defend the transcribers cause, in this case Davidovs Chopin adaptations. Or shall I start with thanking him for precisely that, for choosing Chopins piano waltzes for transcription, because what might seem an unlikely choice turns out to be such a completely blissful one? Maybe Ill begin with a bit of playful, defensive manouvering. First of all we can safely say that the cello was very dear to Chopin.Three out of his five chamber music works are for cello and piano: the expansive sonata, the delightful Grand Duo Concertante, written together with his friend the cellist Auguste Franchomme and the Polonaise Brillante. Also, in his piano works he often seems to try to evoke a cello sound, which explains nicknames for piano pieces such as cello preludeor cello etude that circulate among pianists....
