The four cellist-composers in this recital share a common background: from musical families they played as soloists in outstanding orchestras, taught many students, and wrote music for the instrument that continues to challenge players of our own time with it's virtuosity and intensity. In his 12 Caprices Alfredo Piatti fused dazzling technical demands with operatic drama, whilst David Popper's Suite remains an admired piece for two cellists. Wilhelm Fitzenhagen's Concert Waltzes for four cellos makes prolonged use of the upper register, and in contrast Julius Klengel's Hymnus is a sonorously beautiful elegy for twelve cellists.
