Description: "Virtuoso Cello Showpieces" is the title and this applies most specifically to Orr's 14-minute gift to cellists who might look longingly at Waxman's Carmen Fantasy for violin, to Danzi and to Castelnuovo-Tedesco, all of whom provide technical fireworks aplenty. Maria Kliegel (cello), Nina Tichman (piano).
