Notes & Reviews:

The cello was Frederic Chopin's other favorite instrument. He loved it for its closeness to the human voice. Chopin took an interest in opera from an early age, becoming what today we would call an "opera buff." He was familiar with the voices of all the singers of his time, flirted with the German soprano Henriette Sontag and fell in love with singer Constantia Gladkowska, from whom he penned several superb pieces. When Chopin composed for cello, he heard the voice in its music. Ophelie Gaillard has thus chosen to pay tribute to the poet of the piano through the voice of the cello.
