  • Anssi Karttunen cello
  • Florent Boffard piano

The Finnish cellist with a famously large and ever-expanding repertoire performs alongside an equally wide-ranging French pianist. Unusual in their programme is the work by the fascinating figure of Charles Koechlin (1867-1950). Chansons bretonnes is a collection of 12 pieces ‘sur des thèmes de l’ancien folklore’ dating from 1931-2 and dedicated to the French cellist Madeleine Monnier.

  • Leoš Janáček (1854-1928)
      • Pohádka
  • Charles Koechlin (1867-1950)
      • Chansons bretonnes Op. 115
  • Robert Schumann (1810-1856)
      • 5 Stücke im Volkston Op. 102
  • Béla Bartók (1881-1945)
      • Rhapsody No. 1 BB94a
