Lovely, unfamiliar works for cello and piano by well-known composers

Beginning in the last decades of the 18th century, but accelerated early in the 19th century, New Romanticism seems to have given composers the impetus to write more works for the cello as a solo instrument. The cello's capacity to "sing" was exploited by Romantic composers for dramatic and melodic effects in ensembles. For this recording, cellist Anthony Arnone and pianist Timothy Lovelace have dipped into the cello literature for the "Forgotten Romances" that were written intentionally for the cello and piano rather than arrangements for the cello by well-known composers. Cellist Anthony Arnone is an active soloist, chamber musician, conductor and teacher throughout the country and the world. A native of Honolulu, Mr. Arnone received his bachelor of music degree from the New England Conservatory, and was a founding member of the Meridien Trio and the Sedgewick String Quartet. Also active as a soloist, chamber musician and conductor, Timothy Lovelace studied with Harold Evans, Gilbert Kalish, Donna Loewy and Frank Weinstock. An advocate for new music, Lovelace has given premieres of works by Osvaldo Golijov and others and has recorded for Albany and Boston Records.
