This new CD comes highly recommended from the Tantara staff. Featuring duo partners Massimiliano Frani, currently Artistic Director of the Treviso International Piano Competition, and Brian Stucki, principal cello of the Chicago Opera Orchestra, this value-priced double CD features the songs of Rachmaninov, with the vocal lines transcribed for cello. "This is some of the most breathtaking music I've ever heard," comments Sarah Reinwand, Tantara's former operations manager.
