I'm very excited to release my 1st recordings of star cellist Narek Hakhnazaryan with pianist Benjamin Smith!
He won the Tchaikovsky Competition in 2011 & has a worldwide career. https://www.intermusica.co.uk/artist/Narek-Hakhnazaryan

These 3 tapes are from his recent May concert, recorded LIVE.

1) Brahms Cello Sonata No.2 (Live)
2) Shostakovich Cello Sonata & Salut d'Amour (Live)
3) Albeniz Asturias, Shchedrin Imitating Albeniz, Tchaikovsky Nocturne & Pezzo Capriccioso & Sollima Lamentatio (Live)

I've never heard any cellist play like Narek.... incredible tone & I'm happy to say we got it on these tapes....!

I had an audiophile come from southern California for 3 days to hear this concert & sample the recordings...

I've had a chance to listen a couple of times to tape #3, 'Albeniz, Shchedrin, Tchiakovsky'. It's pretty amazing. Narek is going to be a legend I think, if you've seen him perform 'Sollima Lamentatio' on youtube you're if for a treat.
