Oh well - as if I had not done enough Popper in my life already, my dear friend and colleague Alexander Hülshoff and I embarked on the Popper journey in 2012. It seems as if there is a lot of work to do as most people only play a very small selection from Popper's 76 works, most of which consist of more than one little salon piece ... Having played the duo suite op 16 for a number of years, we finally managed to properly record the piece. "Im Walde" has been one of my favorite things to include in recital programs for a long time, but the op 69 and Waltz Suites were real discoveries.


Popper, the cello genius of the 19th century, deserves more than the reputation he has from the feared but brilliant "High School of cello playing" op 73. Alex' and my Popper project on paladino music hopes to convince you of that ...
