Award winning cellist Carmine Miranda and violinist Boris Abramov’s new Navona release Mozart / Beethoven: Violin and Cello Duets.
Composed almost 50 years apart, Dvořák’s Cello Concerto in B Minor (1895) and Schumann’s Cello Concerto (1850) are closely linked in the pantheon of Romantic concerto literature. Cellists of many generations have long looked at both of these pieces as essential components in their artistic development, and each has been recorded many times over by the titans of the instrument to showcase their technical mastery.
In Times of Torment by Yves Ramette were written during the World War II period. The works includes a world premiere Cello Sonata performed by Carmine Miranda and pianist Karolina Rojahn.
The 12 Caprices have been famous for their technical and musical difficulties among cellists. Navona Records (a division of Parma Recordings) releases an award winning breathtaking recording of Alfredo Piatti's Twelve Caprices performed by Carmine Miranda.
