Description

    The latest release in ABC's ever-popular 'Swoon' series!

    For over 20 years, the 'Swoon' segment on ABC Classic FM's Breakfast show has been a beloved oasis of calm and beauty, a chance to shut out the noise and busyness of everyday life, and drink in the loveliness of pure music. The first CD compilation cemented Swoon's place in the hearts of the Australian public all those years ago, and it has remained the nation's most popular classical brand ever since.

    This double album presents some of Australia's finest cellists playing over two hours of cello music to make you swoon, from the Baroque elegance of Bach's cello suites and sweeping Classical concertos by Haydn, Dvorák and Elgar to modern minimalist masterpieces by Arvo Pärt and Ludovico Einaudi. 

    Featuring soloists including Sally Maer, Li-Wei Qin, Catherine Jones and Umberto Clerici, and ensembles including the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Australian Haydn Ensemble and the Tasmanian, Melbourne and Adelaide Symphony Orchestras.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Swoon! I bought this about the time it was released and I have played it pretty-much on a daily basis. The CD is aptly named. Cello music is almost always relaxing and soothing and this 2CD selection is no exception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cello Swoon is bliss! This is truly beautiful music. You can have it as background music, or turn it down at night to help you go to sleep. Of course you can also turn it up and enjoy every moment of outstanding classical music.
