Sara Sant'Ambrogio: The Chopin Collection
Chopin: Introduction & Polonaise brillante in C major, Op 3 (9:05)
Sara Sant’Ambrogio, cello; Robert Koenig, piano
Even though most of Chopin’s masterpieces reside in the solo piano repertoire, he did leave behind a few works for the cello. Sara Sant’Ambrogio and Robert Koening collaborate on Chopin’s only Cello Sonata and his early Polonaise brillante. They have also discovered arrangements of some of the watzes and nocturnes by the French cellist Auguste Franchomme, who forged a close friendship with Chopin.
