Summary:

Cello virtuosity reigns on Capriccioso, the new album by Grammy-nomiated Antonio Meneses, one of today’s most esteemed cellists. He harkens back to his predecessors – a quartet of European cellists who composed dazzling works for their own instrument. At the heart of the album are 12 Caprices by 19th century Italian cellist Carlo Alfredo Piatti, as well as his Capriccio sopra un tema della Niobe Di Pacini (Caprice on a Theme from Pacini’s “Niobe”. Antonio adds the Bohemian-born David Popper’s Etude No. 29, and bookeneds the album with etudes by the French brothers Jean-Louis and Jean-Pierre Duport.
