Steven Isserlis cello; Dénes Várjon piano

Chopin and Friends


  • Steven Isserlis cello

Steven Isserlis and Dénes Várjon catch the buoyant spirit of the mid-1800s with a delightful programme of works, which reveals the inventive brilliance of Auguste Franchomme’s Nocturne, Liszt’s Romance oubliée and one of Joseph Merk’s many tuneful pieces ‘For Amateurs’.

To explore the repertoire in this recital, Várjon has specially chosen an 1847 Streicher pianoforte.
