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.
