Notes & Reviews:
Every cellist plays at least the two concertos, but there are surprisingly few truly excellent recordings. Christine Walevska not only plays wonderfully, but she gives us all of the composer's major works for cello and orchestra, and the performances have that French crispness and polish that so many more famous soloists lack. She's also very well recorded, and the Monte Carlo Orchestra has this musical idiom in its collective bones. It really is rewarding to hear these performances again.
