Paganini, Chopin & Rachmaninoff
Eline Hensels – cello
Noriko Yabe – piano
Is it even possible to perform the works written by Paganini, the Devil’s Own Violinist, on the cello? Especially if you can only use a single string, like in his Variations on a Theme from Rossini’s Mozes? Eline Hensels, armed with her powerful tone and confident bowing technique, rises to the challenge. As a counterweight for this display of prowess she will play Chopin’s lovely Cello Sonata, op 65, and the dreamy Mélodie from the Morceaux de Fantaisies for piano by Rachmaninoff.
