BBC Radio 3 Disc of the Week

BBC Radio 3’s flagship show “CD Review” has chosen Hélène Grimaud and Sol Gabetta’s “Duo” as Disc of the Week.

“Its one of those recordings that has come out of a festival collaboration – those special environments when top players sometimes have the time and opportunity to find and work with a musical soul mate and that’s what seems to have happened when cellist Sol Gabetta met pianist Hélène Grimaud at the Menuhin Festival in Gstaad last year – an experience they enjoyed so much they’re recorded their recital in the studio. Schumann’s Three Fantasy Pieces immediately offers the chance to hear exactly how they inspire one another … showing the interpretative license they allow each other, the immediacy of response and often a delightful lightness of touch.”

Excerpts of “Duo” will be broadcast on Radio 3 throughout the week and CD Review is available to listen to via the BBC webstream for a further 6 days
