Notes & Reviews:

A disc of chamber duos from composer Jacques Offenbach, who was also a gifted cellist . His cello duets combine beauty, technical brilliance, vivid imagination and a great sense of fun. Performing the works are acclaimed Italian cellists Andrea Noferini and Giovanni Sollima. Booklet contains liner notes on the composer and works as well as artist biographies.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Jacques Offenbach is mainly known for his operettas, but he was an excellent cellist as well. His Opuses 49-54 are collections of cello duets. They start out in the first position in the six of Op. 49, a stricture observed by these cellists. These two or three-movement pieces are lyrical and relaxed in sound, very good for beginners, and pleasant to listen to when played as seriously and musically, as they are here. Op. 54 is another story entirely. By this time virtuosity is the name of the game and everyone is put to the test all the time. These are three of the most demanding pieces for two cellos that I have ever heard. Mister Roughy takes over the top line for these.
