Le Chant du Violoncelle | Chopin & Franchomme

Chopin and Franchomme’s collaboration and sincere friendship rested on a double understanding : they were linked both by a communion of feeling, so precious to the Polish exile in the Paris mondain of the time, and an artistic symbiosis that fed both on an affinity in the mastery of their instrument, and on the sharing of such basic musical values as authenticity, simplicity, elegance, and nobility of expression.

Edoardo Torbianelli and Fernando Caida-Greco first played together in 2000 as a trio formation, with the violinist Amandine Beyer, within the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. Their collaboration led to a musical dialogue based on extensive research, with a particular focus on the Romantic repertoire, revisited in the light of the aesthetic and technical knowledge acquired over 20 years of research.
