Franchomme performed by Isserlis

For those of you in England and Poland this month, Steven Isserlis will perform Franchomme’s Nocturne Op. 15, No. 1 at two festivals in August:

Aldeburgh Music Festival in England (of Britten-Pears fame, and where I was fortunate to be a student in masterclasses taught by William Pleeth)

and as part of a fascinating ‘Chopin and friends’ program at the Chopin Festival in Warsaw:

I’m proud to say he received his copy of this work from me.  Our upcoming album features the cello duo versions of this same Nocturne and the other two in Op. 15.
