Cello Duo at the Romanian Athenaeum
Both cellists are involved in concert activities worth praising, not just as a duo but also individually, taking part in different other chamber projects. Last night they performed two duets by Haydn and Jacques Offenbach, a very interesting work of the Italian composer Giacomo Cervetto - Divertimento Op. 4, No. 1, and in the end a work that had to be included in the repertoire of a cello duo - Sonata in G major by Jean-Baptiste Barrière.
I noticed the good coordination and the confidence shown by both cellists, despite their minimal gestures. However, the rather small number of people attending the recital casta shadow on the event, which was partially justifiable given the unusual competition posed by other concert halls in Bucharest on a Tuesday evening.
