Nicolas Altstaedt, Jose Gallardo
From the Wigmore Hall, London, Nicolas Altstaedt (cello) and Jose Gallardo (piano) perform music by Beethoven, Prokofiev, Boulanger and Astor Piazzolla.
Live from London's Wigmore Hall, Radio 3 New Generation Artist Nicolas Altstaedt, with pianist José Gallardo, plays a colourful and eclectic programme of cello music. He includes a set of variations by Beethoven, the sonata that Prokofiev wrote for Rostropovitch, three little pieces by the French teacher and composer Nadia Boulanger and ends with one of Astor Piazzolla's most uninhibited tango-based works.
