Notes & Reviews:

This sensational new release from cellist Alban Gerhardt recaptures the novelty of the much-loved encores performed by Pablo Casals. Casals, one of the world's greatest cellists, had a vast repertoire of encores that were adored by his audiences. The disc features transcriptions of works by composers including Fauré, Chopin, Saint-Saëns, Popper, Boccherini and Wagner. Gerhardt performs these miniature masterworks with extraordinary finesse and verve and is intelligently partnered and perfectly matched by pianist Cecile Licad in her Hyperion debut.

"There is much more to an encore, as Alban Gerhardt will tell you, than casually capping a recital with an audience-pleaser...Listen to Gerhardt in Benjamin Godard's Berceuse de Jocelyn and there is a paradigm of the exceptional eloquence and discernment that distinguishes the entire disc." -The Telegraph*****
