Happy Birthday, Auguste Franchomme!

Happy Birthday Franchomme!  The Cello-Bration begins today and goes all week, with one new live video here each day, and giveaways!  Here is the first: Franchomme’s Nocturne Op. 15, 1 performed by cellists Louise Dubin and Philippe Muller, at the recent edition of VioloncellenSeine in Paris, on 12/4/2016.
