Description: Yes, there are three other recordings now of the Volkmann concerto (amazing in itself) but we offer this new one for completists who may be interested in the unusual six-minute work for three cellos and for the three short, romantic pieces from all periods of his career which add another 14 minutes to our Volkmann catalogues. Peter Bruns (cello), Mendelssohn Chamber Orchestra Leipzig; Jürgen Bruns.
