Notes & Reviews:

In June, Lynn Harrell also appears on "The Known Unknowns" from Azica Records. Accompanied by the Angeli Ensemble, Harrell performs some of the most known and unknown cello concerti. The recording begins with CPE Bach's Concerto in A major which was written for either harpsichord, flute or cello. This piece is followed by a cello concerto by Haydn that was left undiscovered until 1960; Cello Concerto in C major. It quickly became a standard part of the cello student repertoire. Next is Grützmacher's arrangement of Boccherini's Sonata for Cello and Continuo in B-flat, making it the Concerto in B-flat major. Grützmacher used a different middle movement all together for the concerto and also inserted new sections and created new harmonizations. Finally, Couperin's 12 minute Piéces en Concert which was transformed into a mini concerto by French Pedagogue Paul Bazelaire.
