In 1935, the German composer Hans Pfitzner wrote a rousing cello concerto for Rohan de Saram’s teacher, Gaspar Cassadó. With an abundance of irresistible qualities, the work possesses extraordinary richness and delight. There is an almost Chopin-like quality to the solo part and the orchestral accompaniment is reminiscent of Delius. A self-described anti-modernist, Pfitzner’s best known work is the post-Romantic opera Palestrina, loosely based on the life of the great sixteenth-century composer. This recording, featuring de Saram accompanied by the Netherlands Radio Orchestra led by Bohumil Gregor, marks the recording’s first appearance on CD. The concerto is coupled with two Indian influenced chamber works by John Mayer, Prabhanda for cello and piano and Ragamalas for cello and tanpura.

"Rohan de Saram is on inspired form throughout, especially during the freer, quasi-improvised sections of the Ragamalas." 

Gramophone Magazine

 

"Powerful, fascinating music [Mayer]; impressive-even mighty-performances; and stunning recorded sound!... this disc ventures into two distinct, unusual musical worlds, and comes up a winner in both. You do not have to be musically adventurous to enjoy it." 

Fanfare Magazine


 "The overall performance is extremely well thought out, but passionate..."
