A mon ami

“A mon ami is a monument to friendship, more specifically, to that shared by Frédéric Chopin and the French cellist Auquste Franchomme; a tribute to the special relationship that linked them from when they met in 1832 until the Polish man’s death. Reminiscent of this historic duo, Beatriz Blanco – Cellist and the pianist Federico Bosco conjure up this complicity and understanding in music that is full of both, as well as intimacy and passion.

… We find ourselves experiencing a CD that is remarkable because of the ongoing dialogue between the instruments, presenting us with fine phrasing and with a warm sound, transporting us to those old Parisian halls where Frédéric and Auguste shared their music.”

A wonderful review from Da capo al fine!
