Description

This uncompressed, un-doctored recording captures the full pallet of colours, emotions and moods of this extraordinary young duo. Recorded over two days in the music room of the chateau Balmoral, in Spa, Belgium.

WORKS BY: BRAHMS, PIAZZOLLA, POPPER, CASSADO and PAGANINI

  • Johanne Brahms – Sonata for Piano and Cello in E minor Op. 38
  • Astor Piazzolla – Le Grand Tango
  • David Popper – Hungarian Rhapsody Op. 68
  • Gaspar Cassado – Suite for Cello
  • Niccolo Paganini – Variations on one string (on a theme by Rossini)

About this Recording:

Before setting out on this project I persuaded the duo to record as much as possible in
only one take. My philosophy being: ‘rehearse until it’s ready, then we record’. In addition,
Aveline and Aurore agreed not to replace any mistakes with studio implants during the post production and mixing process.

For the recording itself I used a very simple two microphone placement technique to cover
90% of the work. With no compression, over dubbing, frequency equalization or other trickery;
what you hear on this CD is exactly what was played over four days in July in the music room of the Chateau Balmoral in Spa, Belgium.
