Description: A remarkable release which even those Romantic collectors who wouldn't normally consider a solo string instrument recital should think about. Becker's 1919 suite "From the Life of a Woodland Gnome" is the only programmatic solo cello suite I (or the note-writer) can think of; Klengel's 1923 suite is dedicated to his student Emmanuel Feuermann whose virtuosity seems to be at the heart of this neo-classical piece while Tortelier's 1946 suite, which once appeared on Chandos played by the cellist himself in a 1977 studio session, very Bachian in style, contains a movement which was not recorded back then. That and the other two works are World Premiere Recordings. Markus Wagner (cello).
